SELinux won’t disable on CentOS 6

The problem:

Setting SELINUX to disbled in /etc/sysconfig/selinx does not work.   SELinux stays continues to run in Enforcing mode event after a reboot.

The cause:

/etc/sysconfig/selinx should be a symbolic link to /etc/selinux/config but sometimes it is created as an actual file.  This means you can edit it to your hearts content and it won’t change a thing.

The solution:

Option 1:

Edit both /etc/sysconfig/selinux and /etc/selinux/config.

Option 2:

Fix the issue by making /etc/sysconfig/selinux a symbolic link again.
