When selinux is in enforcing mode httpd fails to start

Solution Verified - Updated -


  • I see the following when starting Apache (httpd)
    # service httpd start
    Starting httpd: /usr/sbin/httpd: error while loading shared libraries: libm.so.6: 
      cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
  • I also see the following when I look for this library in /lib or /lib64
    ls -Z /lib|grep -i libm.so.6
    lrwxrwxrwx  root root system_u:object_r:file_t:s0      libm.so.6
