How to chown a directory recursively.

Chown is used to change the user and group ownership of a file.
General use of it tends to be
chown user:group file
But if the directory has multiple directories inside of that it can take time doing it by hand.
We use the -R option which stands for recursive which does every thing inside of the directory.
chown -R user:group directory
