Description John Griffiths 2016-01-31 16:42:25 EST
Description of problem:
Installing Squirrelmail. Selinux permissions do not allow user to log in to Squirrelmail.
SELinux is preventing /usr/sbin/httpd from 'write' accesses on the directory data.

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

If you believe that httpd should be allowed write access on the data 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 /usr/sbin/httpd /var/log/audit/audit.log | audit2allow -M mypol
# semodule -i mypol.pp

After further investigation, this is not a Selinux issue.
