Modifying HAProxy with a HTTPS setup in addition to HTTP

  • Posted June 29, 2014

Hi!

I’ve read this great tutorial (https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/how-to-use-haproxy-to-set-up-http-load-balancing-on-an-ubuntu-vps) and have got it working nicely for HTTP, but not for HTTPS which has been implemented in the latest version of HAProxy.

Does anyone have a working solution to share?

Thanks in advance!

You need to add a second bind directive to your HAProxy frontend:

bind :443 ssl crt /path/to/site.pem

The PEM file can be created by copying the contents of the certificate and then the key into it, like this:

cat site.crt site.key > site.pem
