Linux: Changing / Disable SE Linux configuration from the command line
From the command line, you can edit the
/etc/sysconfig/selinux file. This file is a symlink to
/etc/selinux/config. The configuration file is self-explanatory. Changing the value of
SELINUXTYPE changes the state of SELinux and the name of the policy to be used the next time the system boots.
[[email protected] ~]# cat /etc/sysconfig/selinux # This file controls the state of SELinux on the system. # SELINUX= can take one of these three values: # enforcing - SELinux security policy is enforced. # permissive - SELinux prints warnings instead of enforcing. # disabled - SELinux is fully disabled. SELINUX=permissive # SELINUXTYPE= type of policy in use. Possible values are: # targeted - Only targeted network daemons are protected. # strict - Full SELinux protection. SELINUXTYPE=targeted # SETLOCALDEFS= Check local definition changes SETLOCALDEFS=0 Reboot for changes to take effect immediately [Ref.] Disable SE Linux
