    The only thing you left out is why. Why would you do this?

      @James

      This paragraph states the why bit: “When you install RHEL/CentOS or several derivatives, the SELinux feature or service is enabled by default, due to this, some applications on your system may not actually support this security mechanism. Therefore, to make such applications function normally, you have to disable or turn off SELinux.”
