Server Fault is a question and answer site for system and network administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

How do I go about troubleshooting the following error below:

type=AVC msg=audit(1365523330.609:4846): avc:  denied  { append } for  pid=12542 comm="FTPMan.pl" name="user_list" dev=dm-0 ino=2884237 scontext=system_u:system_r:httpd_t:s0 tcontext=system_u:object_r:etc_t:s0 tclass=file

Was caused by:
    Unknown - would be allowed by active policy
    Possible mismatch between this policy and the one under which the audit message was generated.

    Possible mismatch between current in-memory boolean settings vs. permanent ones.

There wasn't much documentation on this particular error.

Please specify the steps that lead to this situation, e.g. custom modules, custom booleans, commands you issued, specially setsebool, semodule, and friends. –  dawud Apr 9 '13 at 18:16
