Description of problem:
SELinux is preventing /usr/sbin/httpd from 'search' accesses on the directory .

*****  Plugin catchall (100. confidence) suggests   **************************

If you believe that httpd should be allowed search access on the  directory by default.
Then you should report this as a bug.
You can generate a local policy module to allow this access.
allow this access for now by executing:
# grep httpd /var/log/audit/audit.log | audit2allow -M mypol
# semodule -i mypol.pp

Comment 1 Daniel Walsh 2014-08-06 14:43:33 UTC
Is there any reason for httpd to be searhing in /var/lib/ntop?

Comment 2 kayvan.lenovo 2014-08-08 17:41:15 UTC
I don`t think do and I did not use ntop nowhere.

Comment 3 Daniel Walsh 2014-08-18 13:05:13 UTC
I have added a patch to allow httpd to search all directories.

f2a52d2deebcd9fc35ed29a11564a03f5c9e908c  should fix this problem.
