Description Robert Scheck 2005-12-11 13:40:45 EST
Description of problem:
I've got the following situation: Each user of my system has his/her virtual 
hosts in $HOME/web/<vhost> - per default, all files and directories in $HOME/web 
are labeled with httpd_sys_content_t. Using shell everything is okay, but when 
using ftpd for trying to modify the web content, permission is denied.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

Actual results/Expected results:
I added the following rules solving this for my personal use, but maybe these 
could be added at upstream using a selinux boolean or similar?

allow ftpd_t httpd_sys_content_t:dir { create_dir_perms rw_dir_perms };
allow ftpd_t httpd_sys_content_t:file create_file_perms;
allow ftpd_t httpd_sys_content_t:lnk_file create_lnk_perms;
Comment 1 Daniel Walsh 2005-12-12 23:27:32 EST
Could you change the file types to 

Than set the boolean

setsebool -P allow_ftpd_anon_write=1

Should get you what you want.

man ftpd_selinux
man httpd_selinux
for more info
