On my CentOS server ( 2.6.18-128.7.1.el5 ), my fail2ban installation will not restart. No matter how long I let it try, the fail2ban service will not shut down.
So I guess I have two questions:
- Does anybody know how to force fail2ban to quit?
- Does anybody know where there's a step-by-step on the forced quit of services in general?
I apologize if these questions are remedial or the answers are easily available. I have done some searching. Apparently I don't know the correct terminology to find this information ... because I can't find it.
Thanks for any kind soul willing to help with this.
