Subject [users@httpd] php apache SELinux problem
Date Wed, 21 Feb 2007 17:50:08 GMT
I have a web page that calls a file, default.php. The web page works fine on a 
server with SELinux turned off, but not on one with enforcing turned on. The php 
calls in the page are ignored. The errors in the logs are like this:

[client 10.x.x.x] PHP Warning:  main(php/defaults.php): failed to open stream: 
Permission denied in /home/httpd/index.php on line 3
[client 10.x.x.x] PHP Warning:  main(): Failed opening 'php/defaults.php' for 
inclusion (include_path='.:/usr/share/pear') in /home/httpd/index.php on line 3

The permissions on the files are:

-rw-rw-r--  1 root root  8299 Feb 21 10:19 php/defaults.php
-rw-rw-r--  1 root root 4617 Feb 21 10:31 index.php

The SELinux settings are:

-rw-rw-r--  root   root   system_u:object_r:httpd_sys_content_t php/defaults.php
-rw-rw-r--  root   root   system_u:object_r:httpd_sys_content_t index.php

The first three lines of index.php looks like this:

   $relative_path_to_php = "php/"; //*relative* path from *this* page to php 

Any thoughts on why I'm having this problem?
