Remove blocked IPs caused by mod_security at Linux servers

It is quite common a client or even myself not being able to access my website. This is caused because mistakenly the mod_security (a module installed at linux servers to secure your website against malicious users) has placed the IP address at the deny list after thinking it is a suspicious IP. The way to remove it and have access to your site again is:

1) Locate the file: /etc/apf/deny_hosts.rules

2) Remove your IP

3) Restart apf: apf –restart
