    Managed to block myself

    I installed APF firewall and all configurations were fine.
    I have done this before with other servers too.

    After everything was setup and working properly, I restarted the firewall apf -r and then it threw me out.

    No I can't ping my ip, I don't see the cPanel setup page nor log into ssh to fix this.

    Is there anything I can do except os reload?

    Did your provider give you serial console access or will they do it temporarily?

    Do they have any KVM units?

    You can usually have these hooked up to your machine and do it yourself.

    I would think the quickest and easiest thing to do is just have your provider reboot your box and disable the firewall (or just single-user it and start network/ssh for you).
