I tried it: edited the config file /etc/ufw/ufw.conf, and rebooted.
My apache2 web server was blocked, in spite of the entry in
So I disabled it again. I'll have to spend more time reading the
documentation. I find the mixture of configuration lines and commands
to be confusing. I don't want to have to enter commands every time I
reboot. The bloody thing creates 31 separate tables, and there's a lot
of structure but not much guidance. Besides that, the stuff in
applications.d has some pretty confusing stuff, which may not even be
used judging by the blocking of apache.
