RC iptables issue

I’m running the latest 1.3.0 RC everything’s been good but randomly i went to access the server and all incoming connections where blocked. I useda monitor and keyboard to login and open the control panel port then went into the CP and revaded all firewall rules. upon restart they did not save. so repeated and manually saved the ip tables.

1.2.0 RC on ubuntu 20.04
any ideas or suggestions to what went wrong? and how to get hestia cp to control the firewall again?
