I've just set up Fedora after a most dissapointing 13.10 Ubuntu release and trying to launch Apache however something named SELinux everytime complaining about that the process "/usr/sbin/httpd trying to access name_connect at tcp_socket:". It appears every time I ran some page with a php code. For now it's only a simlpe login page. Any suggestions why it doesn't like my php and what should I do with it?

Great, thank's a lot, I've noticed it giving me suggestions how to proceed but wasn't sure if I should follow them or not.

SELinux stands Security Enhanced Linux (Wikipedia) and it is security module that is enabled by default in Fedora (and RHEL, etc). The error messages you are getting are because of the security policy that is currently in place.

If you see the error message that appears, it will provide details on what should be done to get your entity working.

For additional information, take a look at - this, this and this.

Hope this helps.
