Description of problem:
SELinux is preventing /usr/sbin/nginx from 'search' accesses on the directory mikhail.

*****  Plugin catchall_boolean (47.5 confidence) suggests  *******************

If you want to allow httpd to read user content
Then you must tell SELinux about this by enabling the 'httpd_read_user_content' boolean.
You can read 'None' man page for more details.
Do
setsebool -P httpd_read_user_content 1

*****  Plugin catchall_boolean (47.5 confidence) suggests  *******************

If you want to allow httpd to enable homedirs
Then you must tell SELinux about this by enabling the 'httpd_enable_homedirs' boolean.
You can read 'None' man page for more details.
Do
setsebool -P httpd_enable_homedirs 1

*****  Plugin catchall (6.38 confidence) suggests  ***************************

If you believe that nginx should be allowed search access on the mikhail directory by default.
Then you should report this as a bug.
You can generate a local policy module to allow this access.
Do
allow this access for now by executing:
# grep nginx /var/log/audit/audit.log | audit2allow -M mypol
# semodule -i mypol.pp

If you want to allow apache to use content in your home dir you have to use one of the booleans suggested above.
