I have a "SHOW STOPPER" issue on a brand new install of a CENT OS box. When I installed apache, phpMyAdmin, etc. etc. all from user: ROOT

But the website applicaiton I was running was having trouble creating folders, or temp files. So tried everything including:
1. Changing the Group, user to Apache, Apache
2. Giving all permissions r, w, x to the directory and recursing to all files through filezilla.
3. Creating another user in the system ..

What can be wrong? I have done only default things?

I am in need of urgent help

Show an "ls -ldZ" on every file or directory with which you are having a problem.

for the /var/www/

drwxr-xr-x. apache apache system_u:object_r:httpd_sys_content_t:s0

now for the html:

drwxr-x---. apache apache system_u:object_r:httpd_sys_content_t:s0

now for the "application" running:

drwxrwx---. apache apache unconfined_u:object_r:httpd_sys_content_t:s0
