Description Joe Orton 2007-03-15 14:14:47 EDT
Description of problem:
The httpd process should be allowed write/search/read/etc/create- access within
/var/cache/mod_proxy/ - this directory can be configured for disk caching.

httpd will create subdirectories, delete subdirectories, create, read, write
files within there.
Comment 1 Daniel Walsh 2007-06-21 09:06:48 EDT
Fixed in selinux-policy-targeted-1.17.30-2.146
Comment 2 RHEL Product and Program Management 2007-06-26 11:25:47 EDT
This request was evaluated by Red Hat Product Management for inclusion in a Red
Hat Enterprise Linux maintenance release.  Product Management has requested
further review of this request by Red Hat Engineering, for potential
inclusion in a Red Hat Enterprise Linux Update release for currently deployed
products.  This request is not yet committed for inclusion in an Update
release.

It needs additional configuration in policy ...

# rpm -q selinux-policy-targeted
selinux-policy-targeted-1.17.30-2.148.noarch
Comment 6 Daniel Walsh 2007-10-15 09:51:22 EDT
The directory is still mislabeled.  restorecon -R -v /var/cache/mod_proxy should
fix.
Comment 7 Josef Kubin 2007-10-16 17:21:13 EDT
Yes, it fixes the problem. But it isn't good solution - the scriptlet in rpm
package should reliably autorelabel filesystem to avoid a such situation ...
Comment 8 Josef Kubin 2007-10-16 17:49:19 EDT
BTW rpm postinstall scriptlet contains bug:

... && fixfiles -l /dev/null -C /etc/s....

fixfiles for RHEL4 doesn't have switches -l and -C

The bug apparently appears in case of missing or empty
/etc/selinux/targeted/src/policy/Makefile
Comment 10 Josef Kubin 2007-10-16 18:16:23 EDT
OOPS! `man fixfiles` should be updated for RHEL4.

Comment 11 Daniel Walsh 2007-10-17 00:20:21 EDT
So do we have a bug or not?
