Fail2Ban and Nginx

  • Posted January 24, 2014

Hello there!!

After some reading about Fail2Ban application, i’ve noticed that it was mainly developed for using Apache logs.

Also, here at the DO articles i see that it seems that fail2ban works properly with nginx.

I can’t asure this, so i would like your opinions =)

I have Nginx and Fail2ban installed, should i do any additional configuration for it to work well?

Or am i all wrong and should leave fail2ban as it is? xD

You will need to edit fail2ban’s config file and point the appropriate directive to nginx’s access log file.
