SELinux is preventing /usr/bin/php-cgi "setattr" access on /tmp.

Detailed Description:

SELinux denied access requested by php-cgi. It is not expected that this access
is required by php-cgi and this access may signal an intrusion attempt. It is
also possible that the specific version or configuration of the application is
causing it to require additional access.

Allowing Access:

You can generate a local policy module to allow this access - see FAQ
(http://docs.fedoraproject.org/selinux-faq-fc5/#id2961385) Please file a bug

Do you have a script changing file mode on /tmp directory?

Comment 2 Capone 2010-12-01 13:53:45 UTC
I believe it is RUtorrent causing this...how do I allow it?

Comment 3 Daniel Walsh 2010-12-01 14:01:40 UTC
Capone, did anything actually get blocked?

I think you can dontaudit this and everything will work fine.  httpd running as uid 500 is not going to be allowed to change the attributes of /tmp because of DAC rules anyways.

# grep tmp_t /var/log/audit/audit.log | audit2allow -D -M myhttp
# semodule -i myhttp.pp

Will get it to stop complaining.

Comment 4 Capone 2010-12-01 18:55:45 UTC
Worked Perfectly. It finally stopped complaining...RUTorrent still doesn't work..but that's for another forum!
