CentOS Installation


I have followed the steps above to install for a Cent OS 6.4
All seems to be working except that my test page is not loading. Is there a firewall issue?

What error do you get and from where are you trying to load the test page? From the CentOS server or from an other location?

#ls -lZ /var/www/html


#cd /var/www/html
#restorecon -R index.html <whatever is the document you used as index page>

Its SE-Linux mode which is not executing the file with different context

#ls -lZ /var/www/html

Make sure you did the following

1) Restart Apache after making the changes (/etc/init.d/httpd restart)
2) make sure the file you are hitting is placed under /var/www/html
3) if you are hitting the server from other machine...put a host entry with ip and domain name


For Linux : edit /etc/hosts file and add below line

192.**.**.**(Your ip) test.nadian-investments.com

For windows edit C://windows/system32/drivers/etc/hosts file and add

192.**.**.**(Your ip) test.nadian-investments.com

This is added if your domain is invalid..

Also check /var/log/httpd/test.error_log for more details

is selinux enabled (what happens when you do getenforce ?)

i typically disable selinux (change from enforced to disabled in /etc/selinux/config) for permanent change (requires reboot) or setenforce 0 for current session; i've had this problem before

if you need to keep selinux then modify it to allow apache


virtual hosts are if you are hosting multiple websites
