Disable SELinux on CentOS 7
Security-Enhanced Linux (SELinux) is a Linux kernel security module that provides a mechanism for supporting access control security policies, including mandatory access controls (MAC).
In Laravel, we have to face the “log file permission problem” for SELinux. At this situation by disabling SELinux, this issue can be solved.
Check SELinux Status
SELinux status: enabled SELinuxfs mount: /sys/fs/selinux SELinux root directory: /etc/selinux Loaded policy name: targeted Current mode: enforcing Mode from config file: enforcing Policy MLS status: enabled Policy deny_unknown status: allowed Max kernel policy version: 31
By this command you can disbale SELinux temporarily:
sudo setenforce 0
To disable permanently, open
/etc/selinux/config file and set
SELINUX mod to
# This file controls the state of SELinux on the system. # SELINUX= can take one of these three values: # enforcing - SELinux security policy is enforced. # permissive - SELinux prints warnings instead of enforcing. # disabled - No SELinux policy is loaded. SELINUX=disabled # SELINUXTYPE= can take one of these two values: # targeted - Targeted processes are protected, # mls - Multi Level Security protection. SELINUXTYPE=targeted
Now reboot your server:
sudo shutdown -r now
Once the system boots up, check the status again:
SELinux status: disabled
I don’t recommend to disable SELinux. Search on the web and try to find the perfect solution to that problem. Thank you. ?
