Hi, I keep getting email to my postmaster account saying



2021-02-23 21:05:01,842 fail2ban                [6126]: ERROR   Failed to access socket path: /var/run/fail2ban/fail2ban.sock. Is fail2ban running?

I typed --> sudo service fail2ban status
on centos and got this error message


[root@mail log]# sudo service fail2ban status

Then I browse file  /etc/fail2ban/jail.d/sogo.local and found this line

"logpath     = /var/log/sogo/sogo.log"

But there is no sogo folder under /var/log/ neither there is sogo.log file.
I only found fail2ban.log resides in /var/log/

Please advise on how to fix this error because I keep receiving that email error message every few minutes even after I stopped fail2ban service. Thank you in advance.

Re: Fail2ban Have not found any log file for sogo jail

Disable sogo jail in /etc/fail2ban/jail.d/sogo.local.
