I want to enable SELinux on my VPS but I can't do it.

/etc/selinux/config :

# 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 - No SELinux policy is loaded.
# SELINUXTYPE= can take one of these two values:
# default - equivalent to the old strict and targeted policies
# mls     - Multi-Level Security (for military and educational use)
# src     - Custom policy built from source

# SETLOCALDEFS= Check local definition changes

As you can see, I did not set it to disabled in the config file. But it is disabled:

root@vpsxxxxx:/home/username# sestatus
SELinux status:                 disabled

I restarted the VPS from the provider's website client interface, but it is still disabled.


Which software implements your VPS? Maybe OpenVZ? OpenVZ is incomparible with selinux https://wiki.centos.org/HowTos/Virtualization/OpenVZ
