Misconfiguration between jail rules and existing services
Connect to the server via SSH, back up jail file (
jail.local) and reinstall Fail2ban with the following steps:
Back up the jail rules:
# cp /etc/fail2ban/jail.local ~/
Delete Fail2ban via Plesk GUI (Tools & Settings > Updates & Upgrades) or Plesk autoinstaller:
# plesk installer
Rename Fail2ban directory:
# mv /etc/fail2ban fail2ban_old
Install Fail2ban back via Plesk or autoinstaller.
# mv ~/jail.local /etc/fail2ban/
Try to switch the rule on via Plesk on Tools & Settings > IP Address Banning > Jails screen
If solution from above did not help, use article Unable to activate or remove Fail2ban: error reading information on service fail2ban: No such file or directory
