Wordpress/Ubuntu server: Unable to SSH or SFTP, keeps getting blocked
Hi I have a Wordpress blog hosted on Digital Ocean (using 1-click install, Ubuntu Wordpress 4.7 on 16.04). I have ufw and fail2ban installed on this server, and I’m wondering if they’re causing the issue.
I’m trying to ssh into the server using root user, or even FileZilla into it but can’t seem to get through. Keeps saying permission denied.
Please help, thanks!
