The "official" way to disable SELinux is to change the file
/etc/sysconfig/selinux. I usually just set SELinux to warn me if there is a
security violation but still allow it until I have everything nailed down
right. Here is my /etc/sysconfig/selinux file (note that SELINUX is set to
[root at wintermute ~]# cat /etc/sysconfig/selinux
# 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 - SELinux is fully disabled.
# SELINUXTYPE= type of policy in use. Possible values are:
# targeted - Only targeted network daemons are protected.
# strict - Full SELinux protection.
Hope this helps...
