    Quick Start Installation Guide

    Disable SELinux Security Features

    For a fully successful installation you should disable SELinux. When installing a Red Hat or CentOS distribution, you will be able to use the graphical interface to disable SELinux when configuring the operating system.

    This can also be accomplished by editing /etc/selinux/config from the command line, and setting the SELINUX parameter to disabled with a text editor such as nano or vi. The file should resemble the following text:

    # 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 - Only targeted network daemons are protected.
    # strict - Full SELinux protection.

    Important: SELinux must remain disabled in order for WHM and cPanel to run on your web server. Ensure that the pound sign (#) does not precede SELINUX=disabled. If # precedes this configuration option, the line will be ignored.

    Warning: Do not transfer the SELinux configuration file between computers as it may destroy the file’s integrity.
