Fail2ban config

Ubuntu 16.04.1 Webmin 1.820

For some reason (default behavior?) Fail2Ban didn't configure itself upon install to protect any services (not even SSH).

I had to configure it and I would like to know if this config looks proper. It should protect apache, webmin, ftp and ssh. It only works for ssh (this one I could test for). Even so, is it properly configured?

Here's the conf:

Looks right. Try restarting Fail2Ban so that the updated configurations are applied.

Try to use full path to log files, restart f2b and see if it helps.
