I`m having problems with running haproxy 1.8 on CentOS 7.4 and originally I
planned to post my setup, logs and more. But while thinking about this I
started to doubt that what I am trying is correct.
Let me explain what I'm doing, perhaps there is a better approach which solves
my problem automatically.
I start with a plain install of CentOS 7.4 on which I "yum install" the current
version that CentOS provides (1.5). Then I replace /usr/sbin/haproxy with a
statically linked version of haproxy 1.8.3 (statically because I want a newer
version of openssl 1.1 for example).
This new haproxy runs fine as long as I don't run it with systemd. When I do a
"systemctl start haproxy" it silently fails to load haproxy.
So my basic first question is: shall I try to (with your help) fix this or
should I remove the then current haproxy wrapper and have systemd run haproxy
If necessary / helpful I can provide information about my logs and the way I
compile haproxy, but first I wanted to hear your opinions.
