Failing to start with systemd and unexplained issues


#1

Greetings. I was keen on some specific functionality of haproxy so I built 1.7.0 on my CentOS 7 server. The build when fine and I didn’t really have any issues. However for the life of me I can not get it to be controlled with systemd. Here is what I have. This is the binary that I ended up with:

and here is the startup issue that I get from systemd:

The file in init.d doesn’t appear to be formatted incorrectly as far as I can tell, but here it is anyway:

Is the binary in /usr/sbin/haproxy?


#3

Has anyone been able to solve this issue? I have also run into the same issue when starting, stopping, and reloading fails running HA Proxy 1.7.9 on Cent7.

Do not use the init.d file.

You are using systemd, you have use the systemd unit file and wrapper, not the init.d script.

rm /etc/init.d/haproxy
cd contrib/systemd
cp haproxy.service /lib/systemd/system/
systemctl daemon-reload
systemctl enable haproxy
systemctl start haproxy
systemctl status haproxy
