Jonathan, I didn't want to say Joe would or should disable SELinux. My
intention was just to remark that SELinux interferes with Apache
content. I.e. having the wrong context set will prevent Apache from
delivering the pages. You will then see avc / audit messages in the
syslog (messages file).
There is some documentation (RHEL 4 documentation, Fedora Core docs)
about SELinux and how to handle it.
SELinux is a great tool for security improvement. No surprise that you
have to adjust things which are not part of the distribution to work
with the security limitations. Said that, it is not trivial.
