Re: httpd avc denied problem



Ok that solved that problem but showed up another one.
I have a folder under /var/log/httpd
called /mail
which I put logs messages that come from Squirrel mail
httpd fails with this informative message...
'Unable to open logs'
/var/log/messages
'httpd: httpd startup failed'

I look at the /var/log/httpd directory and I do see this folder I created is
labeled differently
[root webmail ~]# ls -Z /var/log/httpd/
-rw-r--r--  root     root     system_u:object_r:httpd_log_t    access_log
-rw-r--r--  root     root     system_u:object_r:httpd_log_t    access_log.1
-rw-r--r--  root     root     system_u:object_r:httpd_log_t    error_log
-rw-r--r--  root     root     system_u:object_r:httpd_log_t    error_log.1
drwxr-xr-x  root     root    system_u:object_r:httpd_log_t        mail
-rw-r--r--  root     root     system_u:object_r:httpd_log_t
ssl_access_log
-rw-r--r--  root     root     system_u:object_r:httpd_log_t    ssl_error_log
-rw-r--r--  root     root     system_u:object_r:httpd_log_t
ssl_error_log.1
-rw-r--r--  root     root     system_u:object_r:httpd_log_t
ssl_request_log

And here is what I have in my custom.fc
/var/www/.*/logs(/.*)?            system_u:object_r:httpd_log_t
/var/log/httpd/mail(/.*)?               system_u:object_r:httpd_log_t
/var/log/httpd/mail                     system_u:object_r:httpd_log_t

[root webmail ~]# ls -Z /var/log/httpd/mail/
-rw-r--r--  root     root     root:object_r:httpd_runtime_t    error_log

After running fixfile relabel
[root webmail ~]# ls -Z /var/log/httpd/mail/
-rw-r--r--  root     root     system_u:object_r:httpd_log_t    error_log

service httpd start
httpd fails with this informative message...
'Unable to open logs'
/var/log/messages
'httpd: httpd startup failed'

So I am write in thinking at this point the problem is no longer with
selinux?
