SELinux, contexts, restorecon, chcon

Threaded View
I wonder if someone can give me some pointers regarding the following problem:

I am running RHEL4 x86_64 on a Quad Opteron HW.

I have the following in

/etc/httpd              -d      system_u:object_r:httpd_config_t
/etc/httpd/conf.*               system_u:object_r:httpd_config_t

Yet, after I created '/etc/httpd/conf/ssl' and some subdirectories thereof and
they were
assigned user 'root:', running 'restorecon -R -v /etc/httpd/conf' does not
restore the correct
user 'system_u:'.  I actually have to do 'chcon' to force the user attributes.

Just for the record:

one has to use 'restorecon -R -F -v' to change the user attributes.  Option '-F'
is not
documented in man pages.
