Description Kevin Clevenger 2012-05-25 15:08:48 EDT
Description of problem:
When starting httpd with systemctl the httpd process runs with "system_u:system_r:httpd_t". When starting httpd from the command line the httpd process runs with "unconfined_u:unconfined_r:unconfined_t".

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

How reproducible:
Run systemctl start httpd.service
Run httpd or httpd -X from the command line

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run httpd or httpd -X from the command line 
Actual results:
httpd runs as unconfined_u:unconfined_r:unconfined_t

Expected results:
httpd runs as unconfined_u:system_r:httpd_t

Additional info:
Running httpd with FollowSymlinks and AllowOverride All. I'm symlinking a php webapp from ~/Sites/site to /var/www/html/site
Comment 1 Miroslav Grepl 2012-05-27 15:14:07 EDT
Yes, this is correct. You should not run httpd without the unit file. If you need this you can use runcon

# runcon -u system_u -r system_r -t initrc_t -- runcon -t httpd_t -- httpd -X
