How to Properly Turn Off SELINUX

It is possible that when attempting to turn off SELINUX that you could cause your hwVPS to become unbootable. For example, configuring restorecond to not start on boot before following the steps in this article will cause your hwVPS to become unbootable.

If you wish to turn off SELINUX, follow these steps before making any changes related to SELINUX or any SELINUX related services:

1) Edit the /etc/selinux/config file directly on the hwVPS using a text editor such as vim or pico. Change the line:

SELINUX=enforcing

to:

SELINUX=disabled

2) After you have made that change, reboot your hwVPS with the command:

shutdown -r now
