    SELinux is a complicated (for new users) way of further tightening security on your server to only allow apps and users to install, create or use files and directory paths. Too much confusion if Centmin Mod supported and enabled SELinux

    turning SELinux on before or after Centmin Mod install will cause ALOT of problems as Centmin Mod doesn't install stuff in standard places so you will have all sorts of permissions issues you need to work out for SELinux - you'd be on your own sorting that stuff out as per above linked SELinux info.
