Why are we getting the status errors that say haproxy is inactive?

Linode Staff

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.

  1. Check the state of HAProxy process
    sudo systemctl status haproxy.service -l --no-pager

  2. Inspect systemd logs for errors with journalctl
    sudo journalctl -u haproxy.service --since today --no-pager

  3. Check for HAProxy configuration issues
    sudo haproxy -c -f /etc/haproxy/haproxy.cfg

  4. Review the service log file
    sudo tail -n 2 /var/log/haproxy.log

Below are some additional resources you can checkout to gather more information during your troubleshooting journey!
