My Plesk is installed in a Virtuozzo Container. When I activate new firewall rules for the Plesk firewall, the following error occurs:

Error: Could not activate firewall configuration:

safeact: safeact: /usr/local/psa/var/modules/firewall/ failed:
iptables: No chain/target/match by that name

proc_close() failed: var: Deprecated. Please use the public/private/protected modifiers


This error occurs if a required iptables module is not loaded on the node.


Follow the instructions in the article "How do I enable firewall in a CT?" to set up modules required for iptables firewall functioning.
