Will Ubersmith work with SELinux?

Art. Nr: 104  |  Rating: 4/5 from 538 votes  |  Last Updated: Sat, May 19, 2012

Security-Enhanced Linux, or more commonly known as SELinux, is a security feature installed by default on certain types of Linux distributions (predominately ones derived from RedHat).

While SELinux doesn’t cause known problems within Ubersmith, it is suggested to switch SELinux into "Permissive" or "Disabled" modes. To do this, please see the step-by-step directions outlined below:

  • Login to your Ubersmith Instance server via SSH
  • Next, run the following command within SSH:

    # echo 0 >/selinux/enforce

The aforementioned command will disable SELinux temporarily within Linux, so you will have time to analyze if it’s causing an error. If so, you will be able to permanently disable it by doing the following:

  • Login to your Ubersmith Instance server via SSH
  • Next, run the following command within Linux:

    # vi /etc/selinux/config

  • Locate/update the "SELINUX" value to "disabled":


  • Once completed, simply save the settings and exit (esc key + :wq)

Should you have any further questions pertaining to your Ubersmith license, please feel free to get in contact with the LicenseCube support team for additional assistance.

Selinux is stpping almost every software not only Ubersmith as hosting billing system.
