Setup a WHM, CPanel and WordPress website on a DO droplet. Accessed the WHM via the link provided after making a connection via ssh
After changing the host name I am no longer able to reach the WHM, CPanel or Wordpress from my IP address.
I tested the functionality of all of these services by making a remote connection to a Windows 10 desktop that I have setup on the west coast and verified that I can reach the admin consoles on all of the services.
There is no firewall setup in the DO control panel and when I ssh into the server I ran ufw status and it does not recognize the command.
I used the marketplace WHM to setup this droplet and I am wondering if there could be something like fail2ban or some other IP blocker running on this droplet and how I can find it.
