fail2ban on ubuntu 18.10

Posted March 3, 2019 1.6k views

I’m trying to find a good article on configuring fail2ban on ubuntu 18.10

everything I find the jails don’t looks like it does my instance which is making it hard for me to grasp and giving me issues.

my main question question is the tags, like [apache-badbot], is that a module or a log entry that fail2ban looks for? so far I just have shhd and php-urlopen working correctly.
