    Locked out - now what???

    After adding a virtual site and accidentally giving it the same ip-address as my home pc, I got locked out of the server from home. No more http, no more ssh, no nothing.
    Thank goodness I still have my "old" ISP account, a dialup one with a fixed ip-address. If I dialup I can reach my server again. YAY!

    My regular ip-address (and the dialup one for that matter) is in /etc/hosts.allow, in portsentry.ignore, and ipchains has been set to always allow. So no matter what, I should always have access, right?!

    I removed the new virtual site by hand, removed the group account, restarted httpd. No luck
    I checked /etc/hosts.deny, my ip is not listed there.
    I used ipchains -L, my ip is allowed
    I checked all kinds of portsentry.blocked files, my ip is not there.

    What else can I check/do???

    And what the h*** happened? Why did I get locked out?
    Hmm, what does this do... Oops!

    reboot the server.

    There were some cases where we had IP conflicts on the raq and other servers (ya stupid dedicated clients on the same class C which think its funny to to add an ip to their aliasing)
    and the IP just dies (timeouts) from the raq and by restarting httpd, it doesnt work. A full reboot usually does the trick in fixing things.
