tried those still getting the same error … no perfect tutorial available to configuring SELinux policies for apache ? iam new here and dnt hve linux skills please any one help


SELinux requires a little configuration and by default, will not allow Apache to write to files/directories. I’d recommend taking a look over the guide below as you’ll need to run a few commands to get things working properly while it’s enabled.
