Default The Perfect Server fail2ban problem

I can't seem to get fail2ban to start up. I don't know if it is a jailkit issue or a fail2ban issue (or me being stupid issue), but this is the only part of the guide I am having trouble with.

sudo /etc/init.d/fail2ban restart
Restarting authentication failure monitor: fail2ban failed!

Here is the fail2ban.log file

2011-12-18 10:13:57,033 fail2ban.server : INFO Changed logging target to /var/log/fail2ban.log for Fail2ban v0.8.4-SVN
2011-12-18 10:13:57,034 fail2ban.jail : INFO Creating new jail 'ssh'
2011-12-18 10:13:57,034 fail2ban.jail : INFO Jail 'ssh' uses poller

2011-12-18 10:13:57,070 fail2ban.actions: INFO Set banTime = 600
2011-12-18 10:13:57,128 fail2ban.jail : INFO Jail 'ssh' started
2011-12-18 19:06:07,371 fail2ban.jail : INFO Jail 'ssh' stopped
2011-12-18 19:06:07,371 fail2ban.server : INFO Exiting Fail2ban

Thanks for any help

Did you modify any other fail2ban configuration files apart from the ones mentioned in the tutorial?

What happens when you undo the changes from the tutorial? Does it work then?

Nope, all the files are configured the same as the file... I will double check over all the files again to make sure nothing is missing and if that doesn't work I will try changing them back, but this is a fresh install all the way around so I don't know how I screwed it up. After having trouble the first time I followed a recommendation on a post and upgraded to jailkit 2.14 though.
