Did you recently fiddle with your PostgreSQL libs or anything related to it ? Whatever may be your answer the easy fix is to Set Selinux in permissive mode as shown below -

su -c "setenforce 0"

If this doesn't work Disable Selinux, go to /etc/selinux/config and change it (though that is not recommended) to check if it works.

If you have PostgreSQL you may be a victim of the issue mentioned here. Try fixing it as directed in the above link.
