Okay. I figured out what was happening with this. As it turns out I
recently added a line to the kickstart postscript section in which I
lowercase everything within the webroot with a batch file that I created.
The line was like this:
/bin/lcase.batch -R /var/www/webroot
But I don't understand why this could affact iptables. I use -R because
there are several directories within the webroot I need to lowercase.
However, when I changed the line to this:
I still had the problem I described earlier with iptables not working. What
is happening here? Why is _everything_ being lowercased (with or without
the -R)? Thanks. R.
