Pgpool – semanage config files – which filetype should I choose?

Question :

Reffering to problem with pgpool installation :
Problem with pgpoolAdmin installation
I had a problem with non running pgpooladmin(installation files permission was wrong).
I must change file label of files: “pgpool.conf” and “pcp.conf”. I checked those files with ls -Z and saw this:

[root@cvc etc]# ls -Z

-rw-rw-rw-. apache root unconfined_u:object_r:etc_t:s0 pcp.conf

-rw-rw-rw-. root root system_u:object_r:etc_t:s0 pcp.conf.sample

-rw-rw-rw-. apache root unconfined_u:object_r:etc_t:s0 pgpool.conf

-rw-rw-rw-. root root system_u:object_r:etc_t:s0 pgpool.conf.sample

-rw-rw-rw-. root root system_u:object_r:etc_t:s0 pgpool.conf.sample-master-slave

-rw-rw-rw-. root root system_u:object_r:etc_t:s0 pgpool.conf.sample-replication

-rw-rw-rw-. root root system_u:object_r:etc_t:s0 pgpool.conf.sample-stream

-rw-rw-rw-. root root system_u:object_r:etc_t:s0 pool_hba.conf.sample

Communicate from SELinux tolds:

You should change label of pgpool.conf with
semanage fcontext -a -t FILE_TYPE ‘pgpool.conf’,
which FILE_TYPE is one of below:
squirrelmail_spool_t,
dirsrvadmin_config_t,
afs_cache_t, httpd_t,
user_cron_spool_t,
httpd_lock_t,
dirsrv_config_t,
httpd_tmp_t,
dirsrvadmin_tmp_t,
httpd_cache_t,
httpd_tmpfs_t,
httpd_squirrelmail_t,
puppet_tmp_t,
dirsrv_var_log_t,
zarafa_var_lib_t,
dirsrv_var_run_t,
httpd_var_lib_t,
httpd_var_run_t,
httpd_nagios_rw_content_t,
passenger_tmp_t,
httpd_nutups_cgi_rw_content_t,
httpd_apcupsd_cgi_rw_content_t,
httpd_dspam_rw_content_t,
httpd_mediawiki_rw_content_t,
httpd_squid_rw_content_t,
httpd_prewikka_rw_content_t,
httpd_smokeping_cgi_rw_content_t,
passenger_var_run_t,
httpd_openshift_rw_content_t,
httpd_dirsrvadmin_rw_content_t,
httpd_w3c_validator_rw_content_t,
cluster_var_lib_t,
cluster_var_run_t,
httpd_user_rw_content_t,
httpd_awstats_rw_content_t,
root_t,
httpdcontent,
httpd_cobbler_rw_content_t,
httpd_munin_rw_content_t,
cluster_conf_t,
cluster_tmp_t,
httpd_bugzilla_rw_content_t,
httpd_cvs_rw_content_t,
httpd_git_rw_content_t,
httpd_sys_rw_content_t,
httpd_sys_rw_content_t
Next you have to execute:
restorecon -v ‘pgpool.conf’

When I try to change filetype it tolds me that choosen one is wrong… which filetype should I choose?

Answer :

Solution founded:
Image of the bug

To repair this issue I must execute this comand:

chcon -t httpd_user_rw_content_t pgpool.conf

and

chcon -t httpd_user_rw_content_t pcp.conf

Image of changed files labels

then pgpooladmin will show that those files are writable and will allow to click “Next” to install pgpoolAdmin.
Yay Cheers 😀
