Maintenance mode


#1

I looked at this page and wonder how this is suppose to work:

# Control the maintenance page during runtime using the stats socket:
#
# To put the whole site in maintenance mode (for all IPs):
# > add acl #0 0.0.0.0/0
#
# To exclude your own ip, so you are able to test things out:
# > add acl #1 8.8.8.8
#
# To exit maintenance mode again simply remove the mask from #0 again:
# > del acl #0 0.0.0.0/0

Where and when should I use this commands? For me it looks like it shall be entered from the shell or should I uncomment the lines an restart haproxy?

First sentence: Control the maintenance page during runtime using the stats socket

Which mean???

(I’m a complete novice with haproxy)

You can configure a socket on the machine hosting HAPROXY to send commands via the CML to haproxy.

Similar to the /stats page.

you can check the install documentation to tell you how to make the socket.

Thanks a lot. I’ll check this. :slight_smile:

The only problem now is that the way of doing this (as described in the document in the link) does not work. I get a failure when restarting haproxy. I’m currently not able to find out why.

BTW, I have version 1.5.8
