So, you haven't been active here for a long time. You don't participate in meta, cast flags, have many notable badges and your voting is appalling. How is this a good basis for being a moderator?

If you had provided the relevant information from your logs, in particular the audit log and error_log we may have been able to help you solve this correctly. Disabling SELinux may be expedient but it is almost never the correct solution.

Instead of disabling SElinux - why don't you spend bit of time learning it and fix the problem correctly ? Disabling SElinux is (almost never) the correct answer.
