So this is where you have to tell your client "your preferred solution (PostgreSQL) isn't working. But this one (MySQL) is. Would you like me to implement a working solution for you, or would you like me to spend a great deal of time (and your money) debugging your preferred solution.

As an aside, I'll still bet a glass of ale that the problem is SELinux....
