posix_setgidSet the GID of the current process

Description

posix_setgid ( int $gid ) : bool

Note:

If the caller is a super user, this will also set the effective group id.

Parameters

gid

The group id.

Return Values

Returns TRUE on success or FALSE on failure.

Examples

Example #1 posix_setgid() example

This example will print out the effective group id, once it is changed.

<?php
echo 'My real group id is '.posix_getgid(); //20
posix_setgid(40);
echo 
'My real group id is '.posix_getgid(); //40
echo 'My effective group id is '.posix_getegid(); //40
?>
