Subject [Httpd Wiki] Update of "13PermissionDenied" by MarkWatts
Date Fri, 24 Sep 2010 12:40:32 GMT
Dear Wiki user,

You have subscribed to a wiki page or wiki category on "Httpd Wiki" for change notification.

The "13PermissionDenied" page has been changed by MarkWatts.


  '''DO NOT''' set files or directories to mode 777, even "just to test", even if "it's just
a test server". The purpose of a test server is to get things right in a safe environment,
not to get away with doing it wrong.  All it will tell you is if the problem is with files
that actually exist.
+ = (13)Permission denied: proxy: HTTP: attempt to connect to (localhost) failed
+ This error is not really about file permissions or anything like that.
+ What it actually means is that httpd has been denied permission to connect to that IP address
and port.
+ The most common cause of this is due to SELinux not permitting httpd to make network connections.
+ To resolve it, you need to change an SELinux boolean value (which will automatically persist
across reboots).
+ You may also want to restart httpd to reset the proxy worker status, although this isn't
strictly required.
+ {{{
+ # setsebool -P httpd_can_network_connect 1
+ }}}
+ For more information on how SELinux can affect httpd, read the httpd_selinux man page.
