RE: Allowing vsftpd access for user's home directory



 
On the following problem:

# semodule -i local.pp
libsemanage.semanage_commit_sandbox: Could not remove previous backup
/etc/selinux/targeted/modules/previous.
semodule:  Failed!

-----

I found the following on this list April thread to temporarily fix the
issue:

So, I did:
# restorecon -R /etc/selinux/targeted
# semodule -i local.pp

And I no longer have the failed message above.
This helps me to solve to make local policy module for ftpd access over
resources with type httpd_sys_content_t
( enabling ftp access over user web resources )

:)

Hello,

Tried that as well, I am using ~/selinux/local
After the change by chcon

# ls -Z ~/selinux
drwxr-xr-x  root     root     user_u:object_r:usr_t            local

# ls -Z ~/selinux/local
-rw-r--r--  root     root     user_u:object_r:usr_t            local.mod
-rw-r--r--  root     root     user_u:object_r:usr_t            local.pp
-rw-r--r--  root     root     user_u:object_r:usr_t            local.te

# semodule -i local.pp
libsemanage.semanage_commit_sandbox: Could not remove previous backup
/etc/selinux/targeted/modules/previous.

In fact I have now solved the issue.
It involves enabling the boolean as you suggested before :

# setsebool -P ftp_home_dir 1
# setsebool -P ftpd_is_daemon 1

Plus, changing the corresponding user home directory ACL to be less
restrictive than 0700 -> 0755
( thanks to Thomas Bleher for the hint )

Try this:

Move the files you've used for this process (the .te/.pp files etc.) to
a new, empty directory (I used /root/selinux.local) and change to that
directory. Then do:

# chcon -Rh -t usr_t .

Then try the semanage command again.

Paul.
