To disable SELinux on RedHat/Centos server is an easy process. All we need is to edit a config file located here:


Use your favorite text editor (I like vim) and edit the above file:

vim /etc/selinux/config

Change the value to SELINUX=disabled

# 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.
# SELINUXTYPE= can take one of these two values:
#       targeted - Targeted processes are protected,
#       mls - Multi Level Security protection.

Then, you must reboot your RedHat/Centos server in order for changes take effect:

sudo reboot
