HAProxy community


Really new to setting up HAproxy and definitely going through some growing pains here.

I’m accessing my website directly. I’m using pfsense 2.4.4 with haproxy (version 1.8.23) plugin.
I have valid Let’s Encrypt Certificates installed with pfsense for my domain.

I’m trying to use HAProxy simply as a reverse proxy with SSL termination for backend apache web server (only running on port 80).

I’m receiving errors when trying to access the site directly my IP address:
Firefox: An error occurred during a connection to 69.xxx.xxx.xxx. SSL received a record that exceeded the maximum permissible length.


Here is my HAproxy config file:

I generated the ssl-default-bind-ciphers/options, ssl-default-server-ciphers/options using the Mozilla SSL generator: https://ssl-config.mozilla.org/#server=haproxy&server-version=2.1&config=intermediate

Thanks for any advice.
