Why are we getting the status errors that say haproxy is inactive?
We have installed haproxy.service in the centos-ap-west linode server.
We have added xip.io.pem file in the path /etc/ssl/xip.io, after that we are unable to start haproxy.
I'm sorry to hear that you're having trouble with this service. The below steps outline some helpful ways to troubleshoot common errors with HAProxy.
Check the state of HAProxy process
sudo systemctl status haproxy.service -l --no-pager
Inspect systemd logs for errors with journalctl
sudo journalctl -u haproxy.service --since today --no-pager
Check for HAProxy configuration issues
sudo haproxy -c -f /etc/haproxy/haproxy.cfg
Review the service log file
sudo tail -n 2 /var/log/haproxy.log
