HAProxy extremely slow at starting up and reloading


I’ve got HAproxy running inside OPNsense. I use it only for local certificate managment (So I don’t get those selfsigned certificate warnings) and security, where I only allow access through port 433 to all my services and only through Cloudflare.

So not realy any load balancing or special things.

Each time I reboot the machine it hangs on Starting HAProxy for 5 minutes and reloading to apply any changes takes just about as long.

Any ideas what might be the cause?



Figured it out. It was Unbound DNS that was misconfigured, couldn’t start and kept retrying and crashing, go figure.
