SELinux & PHP


Whenever I have SELinux enabled in RHEL4 on my web server, PHP files cannot be accessed and a 403 is encountered. To have it work, I can simply disable SELinux. I'd prefer to have it active and let PHP applications run. I'd appreciate any suggestions...thanks.

i believe you should just need to enable httpd_enable_cgi within the selinux configuration, but seeing as all i really know about selinux is a talk i attended by one of the lead developers the other day, i can't really say much more, and as you ahve probably seen, google isn't much more use. this did look relatively useful. http://www.redhat.com/archives/fedor.../msg00097.html you i think you'll will also want to check the security context of the php directory too, with ls -z

I have CGI scripting enabled...it hasn't helped the issue.

That post from the Fedora list seemed useful; however, I have no idea what 'httpd_php_t' is or how to utilize that to allow PHP scripts to execute.
