Wink Disable SELinux on Fedora Core.

dear Stanford,

If you are using Fedora Core :

1. edit /etc/selinux/config
2. edit a line : SELINUX=
3. change it to : SELINUX=disabled

then reboot the machine.

yes. I have done that and the web server and other application runs perfectly. But I need to enable SELINUX and run web server and application at the same time. The ports are being closed I think by the SELINUX.
How can I configure the SELINUX to allow all of this?

dear Stanford,

port blocking is not SE Linux's part.
You can check your firewall settings.

pls type :
# iptables -F INPUT


this will flush all of the firewall settings.
