Changing Ownerships and Permissions of symbolic links (symlinks)

So, I was trying to change some symlink permission, because cPanel simply didn't want to let me use files from other accounts. The links created with Ln -s, belong to the user who created them. I kept receiving 403 errors due to the permissions. The fix is a simple '-h' in the chown command like so:

chown -h user:user 

Voila! You can now changes the perms on sym links.
