comment Why is iptables not blocking an ip address?
The last Apache log entry is at 02:44:02 and the first fail2ban message that the IP has been banned is at 02:52:30, so I don't see any evidence of it not working. Please provide the full fail2ban.log for the period.

comment EC2 SSH Prompting for Password
Your SSH client offered the key and the server rejected it. Check that you're using the right keyfile, it matches the key in AWS, you configured the instance to use that key, and that the AMI installs SSH keys.

comment SSL Session Persistence - HA Heartbeat
@symcbean It looks like that SSL session sharing allows sessions to be resumed on a new TCP connection -- even if the TCP connection didn't drop, I doubt that SSL could resume that specific connection.

comment Is it possible to have the same URL serve a different website on a different port?
The URL would be different if the port were different. Do you mean hostname instead? If so then yes, it's possible (but you don't include the port in server_name).
