Thumbs up Solutions!

I found the problem:
  • You've got SELinux installed and turned on (to 'enforce' mode).

The quick solution:
  • Run the command 'setenforce 0'

But if you can't log in to run that command, you need to boot with SELinux turned off:
  • Reboot
    Interrupt the grub boot process (press space or something)
    Type 'a' for editing kernel arguments
    Add 'selinux=0' at the end of the line
    Press enter to boot

To make it permanently off:
  • Edit /boot/grub/grub.conf
    Add 'selinux=0' to the end of the line that starts with the word 'kernel'.
    Note: if you have more than one line that starts with the world 'kernel', add 'selinux=0' to the end of all of them.
