I just tried to enable ufw on my server, it gave me this error :

ERROR: problem running ufw-init

When I tried the second time, it worked. When I tried to set the default rule "sudo ufw default deny" i get the same error and it never works. Also, when I reboot the system, the firewall is inactive!

Earlier when I hired a person to setup my server, I can remeber him saying that Mediatemple servers have a problem with UFW! How can I fix this?
