Apache and selinux
I've just tried to run apache 2 on a fresh install on Fedora Core 3, with all the latest updates. However, I get the error message:
DocumentRoot must be a directory
or something similar when I try to start apache. I tried setting the document root to just /home (from the default, /var/www/html), and I was able to start the server.
After a bit of googling, I found some info about selinux causing difficulties, so I disabled it and tried running the server with the DocumentRoot set to /srv/www/htdocs (my ideal documentroot location) and lo and behold, it works!
I would like to be able to have the directory /srv/www/htdocs as my DocumentRoot, but with selinux enabled, this does not appear possible. Could somebody either tell me what (and where) policy I need to edit to allow this? Failing that, a pointer in the direction of a decent selinux tutorial would be most useful
I read somewhere, that the directory for the server to use, must be owned by apache user or some other user, set in the httpd.conf file.
Try changing that.
