[isf-wifidog] Trouble with Wifi Install

About the order you install stuff. If you're using default package that
comes with FC5, everything should work correctly as it worked for me. I am
using Fedora Core 5 and I installed Apache, PHP5 and PostgreSQL during
installation with default modules. Then once installation finished I
installed additional php modules like mbstring, etc. Once all of this
finished, i followed the instruction on the wifidog website.
About the unable to connect issue. I had that when I was testing. Fedora
uses SELinux (Security Enhanced linux). It creates security policies that
enables you to run your computer more securely according to guidelines set
by NSA but in my experience, it's pain the ass. But fortunately there is way
to modify policy to meet your need. If you're using purly command prompt,
you might want to refer to fedora website and look at their documentation on
configuring SElinux. If you're running Xwindows, then su to root and execute
"system-config-securitylevel" without quotes and go to SELinux tab, click on
modify SELinux Policy. Under HTTPD service, check box the "Allow HTTPD
scripts and modules to connect to network" policy. Save settings and restart
your apache httpd service and run install.php again. Make sure that the
wifidog user and password is correct when you enter it to connect to
database and make sure the postgresql service is running. I hope this helps.
