SELinux is preventing the http daemon from reading users' home directories.

Detailed Description:

SELinux has denied the http daemon access to users' home directories. Someone is
attempting to access your home directories via your http daemon. If you have not
setup httpd to share home directories, this probably signals an intrusion

Allowing Access:

If you want the http daemon to share home directories you need to turn on the
httpd_enable_homedirs boolean: "setsebool -P httpd_enable_homedirs=1" You may
need to also label the content that you wish to share. The man page
httpd_selinux will have further information. 'man httpd_selinux'.

Fix Command:

setsebool -P httpd_enable_homedirs=1
