And there's one more quick workaround to get running very quickly. Not
entirely recommended since this turns off SELinux for nginx (while leaving
it on for everything else). 

# semanage permissive -a httpd_t

With this setting I expect the audit.log file will fill quickly with many
warning messages. Another reason why it is not a great idea except for
emergencies. But it worked for me as a quick test. (Don't forget to set it
back to enforcing later).
