Maybe SElinux, but I doubt SEULIX would be causing this. If it would you should see messages in audit.log or messages.

OK, I'll hold. If that doesn't work I'll install -web and give it a go (as I only run ipaudit).

That was the problem. Once I disabled it it worked like a camp. Thank you for the help.

I'd rather you not disable SElinux as it is a proven good security enhancement. If the problem was with the "httpd_enable_homedirs" boolean you could set that and try again. If it was not then I would like to help you fix things. All you need to do is find related errors in /var/log/audit/audit.log.

http://wiki.linuxquestions.org/wiki/..._trusted_users has the basics else see http://www.howtoforge.org/htaccess_authentication or http://httpd.apache.org/docs/2.2/howto/htaccess.html ?

Ok, I have enable SELINUX, and now all seems ok. But i have kept my firewall disabled. DO you think i need to reeanable the firwall as well, my only concern is that if the port is sending all that data and the firewall is on it will stop there.

Sure, post any related error messages. I'm not sure I get your firewall question but if your firewall has default host rules of allowing SYN in for TCP/80 and ESTABLISHED,RELATED out, then the next initial request to the port should make it known to conntrack.

Odd. I didn't see that post yesterday. No, if you already have the httpd package just 'yum -y install' the mod_ssl + distcache packages (or mod_nss + nss-tools). Alternatively you could use Stunnel for providing a SSL-enabled version for about any "plain" HTTP, FTP, POP, IMAP service.

I have no opinion over what is easier for you. They both aren't hard to install, configure or manage as long as you read the docs. If you have a single certificate all users may use for all IMAPS/POP3S/HTTPS/FTPS to that host then Stunnel might be easier. If your setup requires versatility only Apache can provide then by all means use mod_ssl. I just hope "never heard of" doesn't equal "F1! I can't find a searchengine to search the 'net with" ;-p
