Support for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4 is introduced with the release of ColdFusion MX 7.01. This presents a new security challenge to System Administrators configuring ColdFusion MX for Apache since the SELinux functionality is ACTIVE by default starting with RHEL4. SELinux, or Security Enhanced Linux, is a software product developed by the National Security Agency and has become a standard in Red Hat Linux distributions including RHEL and Fedora Core Linux (FC remains unsupported by CFMX).

This problem and a recommended solution are described further below, but first I'll quote from two references regarding the nature of SELinux.
