I currently run a forum using phpBB with postgresql as the database. It 
is currently hosted on SuSE 9.2.

I would like to move from SuSE to FC4 and I want to keep the SELinux 
protections. If I have SELinux enforcing in targeted, phpBB cannot 
connect to the database. If SELinux is in permissive, phpBB can connect 
to the database.

I am a newbie to SELinux and have no idea how to write my own rules and 
the learning curve seems a bit steep. I will get there, but any help 
would be appreciated solving this.
