Ever heard what 'VirtualHost' is? You may have many of those

I have no idea if this is the case with OP but there could be really
good reasons, contrary to what you think, when configurations other
than defaults should/could be used. These are only _defaults_ for
crying out loud and if something is forcing defaults, or just makes
hard enough to override those, then this something is plain broken
Come on, now -- all you have to do is label the files correctly. E.g.
I'm pretty sure the OP's problems would be resolved by running "chcon
-R -t http_sys_content_t" on his web tree. You do *not* want apache to
read just any file on your filesystem -- it's not "broken by design"
but "made safer by design."
SELinux is not scary or that hard -- once you get used to it, you'll
appreciate the awesome layer of security that it offers.
