You can also use the 'restorecon' command to restore default context values to the contents of a folder or file.

You can use booleans to enable or disable specific actions. To view the booleans and their status, use the getsebool command.

To change a boolean, you can use the setsebool command.
[[email protected] ~]# getsebool httpd_use_nfs
httpd_use_nfs --> off
[[email protected] ~]# setsebool -P httpd_use_nfs=1
[[email protected] ~]# getsebool httpd_use_nfs
