Well that will only fix "a problem" whose cause is a simple mislabelling
or lack of the selinux label.  That has happened to me in the past
upgrading machines with old Fedora versions or ones with filesystems
that had previously been used with selinux=0.  You can also make the
kind of problem this will fix by copying files, say from /var/www/html
to /home and then mv-ing them back.  If your problem is different or
more subtle then naturally it won't help.

Maybe I have been lucky, but I have been able to figure out how to get
around whatever selinux has complained about to me recently.  Only once
did it need a local policy, to get gitweb working.

So because that has been my experience, which I can see has been
different to yours I accept, I am more positive about trying to get it
working.
