Once again, SELinux bit me.. what a pain.  It’s good, I’m sure for something.  but dang, it’s always to blame.

Trying to set up an Apache reverse proxy.   Kept getting a 503 error,

Permission denied: AH00957: HTTP: attempt to connect to ( failed

Did some googling, and thanks to Justin Ellison @ sysadminsjourney.com, he saved the day.

Simple command to allow the reverse proxy:

/usr/sbin/setsebool -P httpd_can_network_connect 1

Found the assist here:
