I need to turn off SElinux for a test Can i do this without a reboot ?
if so , How?

No, you can't completely turn it off. The only way to completely turn it off is reboot. However, you can switch it to permissive mode. In that mode, it will only log violations, but will not block access to resources. If you are testing, this might be better than turning it completely off (since you'd get logged why something doesn't work in enforcing mode). To switch to permissive mode, execute "setenforce 0". To switch back to enforcing mode, execute "setenforce 1". The SELinux will try hard not to clubber your log files when in permissive mode (it will try to log each type of violation only once).
