Installing fail2ban and ipset
Let's now install fail2ban on our server. It's in most (if not all) distro package managers.
NOTE: this assumes you have the required python packages installed, as outlined here.
We'll also need
ipset installed. See my guide here for directions on doing this.
Next, we're going to install ipset to manage the blocking on ip addresses.
On Debian/Ubuntu we can do:
sudo apt-get install ipset
On CentOS/Amazon-Linux you would do:
sudo yum install ipset
Configuration with clean jail.local and apache-custom filter
