vhttpd

Post by aitchon »

I'm installing Texis on a Centos7 vm as a non-root user called txusr. In the install instructions, it states "You will need to login or su to root to start vhttpd, after the install." When I try running vhttpd as root, I get this error:

/home/txusr/morph3/bin/vhttpd: Permission denied

Here are the permissions on vhttpd:

-rwxr-xr-x 1 txusr txusr 10508896 May 12 18:35 vhttpd

How can I get vhttpd to run if it only has exec rights for txusr?

Sounds like an selinux issue. Check /var/log/audit/audit.log and
ls -lZ /home/txusr/morph3/bin/vhttpd

There is no audit.log.

sh-4.2$ ls -lZ /home/txusr/morph3/bin/vhttpd
-rwxr-xr-x txusr txusr ? /home/txusr/morph3/bin/vhttpd

Hmm, ok, looks like you have selinux disabled.

Make sure you're really root using the

Code: Select all

id
command.

Also try

Code: Select all

ldd /home/txusr/morph3/bin/vhttpd
to see what the system thinks of the executable.

As root, I'm not allowed to ls on /home/txusr/

sh-4.2# ls /home/txusr/
ls: cannot open directory /home/txusr/: Permission denied

As txusr, I can ldd:

Unless selinux is on, you should be able to do pretty much anything as root. Try the "id" command as "root" to see what you get. Also, that's not an NFS or other network filesystem is it?

This is actually in a container. I'll look into enabling selinux.

sh-4.2# id
uid=0(root) gid=0(root) groups=0(root),1(bin)

I'd expect enabling selinux to make things more restrictive, not less.

How was the container built? Was it docker? I have created a docker container before that worked.

Yes, it's docker. I also have a container working ok with Texis. But this container which is also running in kubernetes, I need vhttpd running. It seems to work fine with just docker, but when I move to kubernetes, that's when I get the permissions issue.
