I have a Wordpress install from the Apps within Digital Ocean. It comes default with Fail2ban installed for security. I have logged into the server, and have verified my IP is in fact blocked under the f2b-wordpress-hard list.
I have searched online, and the community and read some documentation on removing blocked IP’s but when I try to run the commands but specifically with f2b-wordpress-hard it says command not found. If someone has some information specifically to Digital Ocean and their Wordpress install and how to manage this, that would be great.
To be clear, I did not setup a server environment from the ground up. I just created a droplet and clicked install Wordpress. So managing Fail2ban is a little different with that configuration with what I have found so far. I am not very backend savvy. So please forgive my ignorance with managing servers.
