HAProxy is a free, open-source load balancer and proxy server software that provides high availability, load balancing, and proxying for TCP and HTTP applications. It distributes incoming requests to a set of backend servers based on a configured load balancing algorithm, enabling optimal utilization of server resources.
To install HAProxy on CentOS 8, follow these steps:
sudo dnf update -y
sudo dnf install haproxy -y
Edit the HAProxy configuration file /etc/haproxy/haproxy.cfg to define your backend servers and load balancing algorithm:
sudo vi /etc/haproxy/haproxy.cfg
Here's an example configuration:
log /dev/log local0
log /dev/log local1 notice
stats socket /run/haproxy/admin.sock mode 660 level admin expose-fd listeners
stats timeout 30s
timeout connect 5000
timeout client 50000
timeout server 50000
server server1 192.168.1.11:80 check
server server2 192.168.1.12:80 check
HAProxy should now be installed and running on your CentOS 8 system. You can access the HAProxy statistics page by visiting http://your-server-ip:8080/stats in a web browser, replacing your-server-ip with the IP address of your server.
