Fail2ban stopped working. I have scoured the log files and no errors. It was working and it seems since my last Yum update for security it quit working. I can do fail2ban-client status and it shows 7 jails. I can look in the iptables and it shows the jails. However, when I run fail2ban-regex it shows many hits but none are getting blocked by the iptables. The iptables are on.
This is 0.8.14 and I am on a Linux 2 Amazon Ami with PHP 7 and Python 2.7.14.
When it was working it had over 221 ips banned just in one jail.
Please help me get this going. The bots overrun my system if it isn't in place.
