Disable SELinux CentOS 6

Bismillahirrahmanirrahim..

You need to be aware that by disabling SELinux you will be removing a security mechanism on your CentOS system. Think about this carefully, and if your system is on the Internet and accessed by the public, then think about it some more.

If you really need to disable SELinux on CentOS 6 please follow these steps

# vi /etc/selinux/config

Change SELINUX=enforcing

# 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=enforcing
# SELINUXTYPE= can take one of these two values:
#     targeted - Targeted processes are protected,
#     mls - Multi Level Security protection.
SELINUXTYPE=targeted
to SELINUX=disabled

is 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 - SELinux is fully disabled.
SELINUX=disabled
# SELINUXTYPE= type of policy in use. Possible values are:
#       targeted - Only targeted network daemons are protected.
#       strict - Full SELinux protection.
SELINUXTYPE=targeted

This will disable SELinux on your next reboot.

To check status of your SELinux
