Linux fail2ban not starting up after yum update on CentOS 5
Posted on 2012-03-19
This is the current issue:
[root@messaging ~]# service fail2ban status
Fail2ban (pid 30613) is running...
It just hangs there - have to hit Cntl-C to proceed.
How can I tell yum to downgrade fail2ban? I upgraded wth yum update fail2ban
How can I remove fail2ban and re-install?
Also how can I debug why its not starting up. It did fine before the yum update.
Some more info:
[root@messaging ~]# service fail2ban start
Have to hit Cntl-C to continue and shows an OK.
[root@messaging ~]# ps -ax | grep fail2ban
