The correct way to switch from selinux disabled to enforcing is a several step process.

First, edit /etc/sysconfig/selinux and change SELINUX=disabled to SELINUX=permissive
touch /.autorelabel
reboot
wait while it relabels every single file on your system
Once it comes back up, edit /etc/sysconfig/selinux and change SELINUX=permissive to enforcing. You should be able to turn on enforcing mode using setenforce 1 if you don't want to reboot now.

To recover from where you are now, you will need to reboot and at the grub menu, hit 'e' to edit the current kernel, scroll to the end of the line that starts with either 'linux16' or 'linuxefi' and append a space followed by enforcing=0 then hit ctrl-x to boot using the amended parameters to boot up in permissive mode. From there you should be able to perform the steps listed above.
