I'm currently ruunning an OVH dedicated box, which specifically, has the following operation system installed:
By default on CentOS 7 and above, the firewalld service is used instead of iptables. Sadly, I ran the following command:
iptables -P INPUT DROP
This was from a tutorial, and I wasn't scared because I knew iptables are meant to be flushed if not saved on restart, so I couldn't cause any permanent damage. However, it somehow automatically saved after several reboots.
- Entering rescue mode and adding a cronjob every minute to stop iptables and firewalld (didn't seem to do anything)
- Looking for the /usr/lib/firewalld directory which everyone talks about (definitely didn't exist)
I'm not sure where to go from here, but surely there's a solution?
To note, OVH's IPMI access didn't work as I never configured it so I don't think I can use the console. I've simply got FTP and a problem.
Error when I try console access:
Cannot open /home/shellinabox/input, ignoring
