apache permissions problem, solution

Disabling selinux is of course an option if you are using it locally, but I
intend to have accessable over the internet, so I really want the best
security I can get.

I found a terrific tutorial at
And quickly managed to change the directory security context for the
repository using the chcon tool.

Boy, I'm a happy camper today :)

I believe you're thinking of SELinux (Security-Enhanced Linux):

"Security-enhanced Linux (SELinux)is a patch of the Linux® kernel and a
of utilities with enhanced security functionality designed to add mandatory
access controls to Linux."
