Fixing some random 403's
| 1 minute read
I’ve been having this weird problem with my httpd dev instance where, when I try to serve content, sometimes, seemingly at random, I’ll get 403’ed when it serves. My file permissions are correct, my ownership is correct, but I just won’t be able to access the content. Very annoying.
Today, I figured out the problem: SELinux.
To fix these weird issues, you have to tell SELinux that everything is ok, and you aren’t getting hacked:
chcon -R -t httpd_sys_content_t /var/www/html
Should work after that.
