Red Hat Fedora SELinux Policy

It appears that starting with Fedora Core 3 SELinux is enabled by default and the Apache daemon is protected, meaning the httpd web server daemon cannot write files. For Qdig to be able to write converted images and / or empty caption .txt files the policy must be adjusted.

One way to do this is by installing the system-config-securitylevel package (yum upgrade system-config-securitylevel) and then using system-config-securitylevel to disable SELinux for the Apache httpd daemon. (Thanks to kevinmc2000 for confirming this solution via the Qdig Help forum.)
