This could be selinux.  I tend to disable it, as configuring it for 
proper operation with custom software can be tricky.  If this is the 
problem, there will hopefully be a record of the denial in one of the 
files in /var/log.  CentOS has selinux enabled by default.

In case you don't know how to turn it off: in /etc/selinux/config, set 
SELINUX=disabled and reboot.  There may be a way to disable it without 
rebooting, but I've found that to be the path of least resistance.
