There’s a different on how to copy jail.conf to jail.local. Why on the first tutorial above I need to comment every part of it? This made me confused. That’s causing Fail2ban only works on SSH protection, or am I missing something?

@MrWorldWideWeb Correct, the jail.local overrides settings in jail.conf
