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:
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. SELINUX=disabled # SELINUXTYPE= can take one of these two values: # targeted - Targeted processes are protected, # mls - Multi Level Security protection. SELINUXTYPE=targeted
Then, you must reboot your RedHat/Centos server in order for changes take effect:
