How to disable SELinux

Home / Linux / CentOS / How to disable SELinux

SELINUX is a security feature on CentOS but some software such as SolusVM will require that SELINUX be disabled

Installation log : /tmp/install.log

 Add this slave to your SolusVM master using the following details:

 ID Key .......... : ABC
 ID Password ..... : XYZ

IMPORTANT!! You need to setup a network bridge before you can use KVM on this server.
 Please see the following link: http://wiki.solusvm.com/index.php/KVM_Network_Bridge_Setup

 Please set SELINUX=disabled in /etc/selinux/config before rebooting.


Thankyou for choosing SolusVM.

The solution?

1) Edit /etc/selinux/config using your favourite editor

[root@kvm ~]# nano /etc/selinux/config

and set 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 - SELinux is fully disabled.
SELINUX=disabled
# SELINUXTYPE= type of policy in use. Possible values are:
#       targeted - Only targeted network daemons are protected.
#       strict - Full SELinux protection.
SELINUXTYPE=targeted

2) and don’t forget to reboot your system
