Cannot connect to SQL Server Instance anymore after enabling UFW on Ubuntu 16.04 with webmin already installed
I enabled UFW on a ubuntu server setup by someone else following the documentation on digitalocean. This server already had virtualmin/webmin installed.
Enabling the UFW had no effect on traffic with only OpenSSH allowed, and defaults set to incoming (deny), outgoing (allow). I was still able to visit the website even when Apache as not added to the UFW rule.
I had to reboot the server to see if the UFW will kick in, but the status of the firewall was "inactive" and now I cannot connect to the SQL Server Instance via the application or SSMS even after disabling the firewall.
The application has been down for hours, the world is on my neck and am almost at the end of my rope.
