Web Based Faxing and SELinux
Notes on using Red Hat Fedora for web-based faxing
When using web based faxing in Apache running on Red Hat Fedora, beware of Security Enhanced Linux, SELinux. Quoted from Red Hat: The security goal is to make sure that Apache HTTP is only reading the static Web content, and not doing anything else such as writing to the content, connecting to database sockets, reading user home directories, etc.
See /var/log/messages for any denials due to the SELinux policy. To disable SELinux:
- System, Administration, Security Level and Firewall, tabsheet SELinux
- click the Transition tree
- check Disable SELinux protection for Apache HTTP
- execute /etc/init.d/httpd restart
