disabling selinux

its probably better to learn how to use selinux properly, but if you want to just switch it off

$ sudo vim /etc/selinux/config

# This file controls the state of SELinux on the system.
# SELINUX= can take one of these three values:
# enforcing - SELinux security policy is enforced.
# permissive - SELinux prints warnings instead of enforcing.
# disabled - No SELinux policy is loaded.
SELINUX=disabled
# SELINUXTYPE= can take one of these two values:
# targeted - Only targeted network daemons are protected.
# strict - Full SELinux protection. SELINUXTYPE=targeted

the host needs to be restarted for it to take effect

$ init 6
