Description Paul Howarth 2005-10-17 08:56:10 UTC
Description of problem:
Fedora Extras packages rt3 and perl-HTML-Mason are web applications that, like
many others, need the web server to write cache files. The directories involved are:


Current policy does not allow this. The following additions to 
file_contexts/program/apache.fc should take care of these:

/var/cache/mason(/.*)?	system_u:object_r:httpd_cache_t
/var/cache/rt3(/.*)?	system_u:object_r:httpd_cache_t

Could these changes be included in the next errata update please?

Comment 1 Ville Skyttä 2006-01-29 23:13:00 UTC
I was looking for some examples, and came accross this bug.  But I don't see the
strings "rt3" or "mason" in the whole selinux-policy source tree in Rawhide. 
Have  they moved into another package or been dropped or...?  httpd_cache_t
seems to be assigned only to
/var/cache/{httpd,mod_ssl,php-eaccelerator,php-mmcache,ssl*.sem} nowadays.

Looks like this got dropped from Reference policy.  I will add it back tonight.
 Good Catch.
