Stats page/Control of back-end servers


Hi :slightly_smiling:

First of all, first time using HAPROXY, due to some retard customers who want everything their own way we had to switch from Apache but so far i’m enjoying learning haproxy.

I have an issue though, I’ve seen a bug report but not much else. In some screenshots on the stats pages I can see there is a control that will allow you to down back-end servers for maintenance etc…

However in some others that isnt there and i’m required to use a socket.

My backend connections are in tcp mode, this might be why but wanted to check I’m not being a spod.

any advice?

Cheers :slightly_smiling:



You must turn on admin mode on your stats page:


Verified, working.
