Should we use compiled binaries or PPA version of HA Proxy

Hi All

We are trying to upgrade our current haproxy installation as given below:
OS: Ubuntu 18.04.6 LTS (Bionic Beaver)
HA Version: 1.8.8-1ubuntu0.13

Now we want to upgrade it to v2.6 so which of the approach between Compilation and PPA would be ideal for upgrade.


I’m hoping that you are not sticking with Ubuntu 18.04 which is EOL.

For all Debian or Ubuntu cases, please use Vincent Bernat PPA’s to update to a Haproxy LTS branch:
