    Removed my IP from hosts.deny but I'm still blocked

    I was testing my server last night and ended up blocking myself. My IP was put into /etc/hosts.deny but I deleted that address and rebooted. However, I'm still blocked. What did I miss?

    Other info: In fail2ban, it's set to ignore repeated requests from my IP address.

    Got it. To fix this:

    sudo /etc/init.d/denyhosts stop
    Then remove your IP from /etc/hosts.deny

    Then remove your IP from every file in:

    /var/lib/denyhosts/

    sudo /etc/init.d/denyhosts start
