HAProxy 1.7 web interface checks for maintenance backends


Hi there!!

I’m new here and also in the HA world, in version 1.4 on the left of the web view of backends we had a check in order to disable them for maintenance…how can i get this on version 1.7?



I don’t see what’s different in haproxy 1.7 compared to 1.4; you need stats admin mode in both. Can you share you configuration please?


Thks for your response, the config is pretty simple:

log /dev/log local0
log /dev/log local1 notice
chroot /var/lib/haproxy
stats socket /run/haproxy/admin.sock mode 660 level admin
stats timeout 30s
user haproxy
group haproxy

Only 2 http nodes, after I’ll need to know how to balance two https servers (forward only)



Just like I suspected, you did not configure admin mode. Please refer to my previous post where you can find a link to the documentation explaining it.



Thaks a lot
