My system is running CentOS 6.4 with apache2.2.15. SElinux is enforcing and I'm trying to connect to a local instance of redis through my python/wsgi app. I get Error 13, Permission denied. I could fix this via the command:
setsebool -P httpd_can_network_connect
However, I don't exactly want httpd to be able to connect to all tcp ports. How can I specify which ports/networks httpd is allowed to connect to? If I could make a module to allow httpd to connect to port 6379 ( redis ) or any tcp on 127.0.0.1, that would be preferable. Not sure why my paranoia is so strong on this, but hey...
