Setting up on Alma 9


I cannot get fail2ban to register any login attempts.

About my envionrment: Alma9, php8 in FPM mode.

I have added the filter.d files and edited the jail file.

However fail2ban is not registering any login attempts.

I can find the attempts in this file: /var/log/messages

but setting logpath = to that dir does not help.


backend = auto

in the jail conf fixes it.
