:SELinux is preventing /usr/sbin/lighttpd from 'create' accesses on the sock_file php-fastcgi-1.socket-0.
:*****  Plugin catchall_labels (83.8 confidence) suggests  ********************
:If sie wollen dem lighttpd den Zugriff create auf php-fastcgi-1.socket-0 sock_file erlauben
:Then you need to change the label on php-fastcgi-1.socket-0
:# semanage fcontext -a -t FILE_TYPE 'php-fastcgi-1.socket-0'
:where FILE_TYPE is one of the following: httpd_tmp_t, httpd_tmpfs_t, dirsrv_var_run_t, httpd_var_run_t, systemd_passwd_var_run_t, passenger_var_run_t. 
:Then execute: 
:restorecon -v 'php-fastcgi-1.socket-0'
:*****  Plugin catchall (17.1 confidence) suggests  ***************************
:If you believe that lighttpd should be allowed create access on the php-fastcgi-1.socket-0 sock_file by default.
:Then you should report this as a bug.
:You can generate a local policy module to allow this access.
:allow this access for now by executing:
:# grep lighttpd /var/log/audit/audit.log | audit2allow -M mypol
:# semodule -i mypol.pp

Comment 1 Daniel Walsh 2012-05-15 23:33:49 EDT
What directory is it attempting to create this socket in?
Comment 2 Stefan 2012-05-16 03:57:34 EDT
It's /var/lib/lighttpd/sockets

# ls -lZ /var/lib/lighttpd/sockets/php-fastcgi-*
srwxr-xr-x. lighttpd lighttpd system_u:object_r:var_lib_t:s0   /var/lib/lighttpd/sockets/php-fastcgi-1.socket-0
srwxr-xr-x. lighttpd lighttpd system_u:object_r:var_lib_t:s0   /var/lib/lighttpd/sockets/php-fastcgi-2.socket-0

# ls -ldZ /var/lib/lighttpd/sockets
drwxrwxrwx. lighttpd lighttpd unconfined_u:object_r:var_lib_t:s0 /var/lib/lighttpd/sockets
Comment 3 Miroslav Grepl 2012-05-16 08:34:50 EDT

# chcon -R -t httpd_var_lib_t /var/lib/lighttpd

Also what does

# rpm -qf /var/lib/lighttpd
Comment 4 Stefan 2012-05-22 05:38:31 EDT
# LANG=C rpm -qf /var/lib/lighttpd
file /var/lib/lighttpd is not owned by any package

But /etc/lighttpd/lighttpd.conf says:
var.home_dir    = "/var/lib/lighttpd"

which is the default as shipped by fedora.
Comment 5 Fedora End Of Life 2013-02-13 20:56:48 EST
Fedora 16 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2013-02-12. Fedora 16 is 
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further 
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.

If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of 
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version.

Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
Comment 6 Stefan 2014-01-30 08:23:04 EST
Just a note if some one stumbles upon this:

# chcon -R -t httpd_var_run_t /var/lib/lighttpd

worked for me.
