A group name or number.

Examples

Example #1 Changing a file's group

<?php
$filename 
'shared_file.txt';
$format "%s's Group ID @ %s: %d\n";
printf($format$filenamedate('r'), filegroup($filename));
chgrp($filename8);
clearstatcache(); // do not cache filegroup() results
printf($format$filenamedate('r'), filegroup($filename));
?>

Notes

Note: This function will not work on remote files as the file to be examined must be accessible via the server's filesystem.

Note: When safe mode is enabled, PHP checks whether the files or directories being operated upon have the same UID (owner) as the script that is being executed.
