If you are checking back here every once in a while to look for Debian packages of HAProxy, you shouldn’t bother anymore. The Debian maintainers are currently doing a very good job at http://haproxy.debian.net/.

Just follow the instructions over there and you will be ready to go.

Since I keep forgetting how to do this, I will just post it here. To create a .pem file you need to cat the following files after echother:

  1. Your own key
  2. Your own certificate
  3. Intermediate certificate
  4. [… more intermediates… depends on your certificate vendor…]
  5. Root certificate. Not really needed actually

So for me this would be something like:

cat www_roedie_nl.key www_roedie_nl.crt COMODORSADomainValidationSecureServerCA.crt√ā¬†COMODORSAAddTrustCA.crt AddTrustExternalCARoot.crt > www_roedie_nl.pem

You can leave out the key if you want to load it separately. But I like to have it in one big file.

Heh, just after I decided to package ss-20121226, HAProxy 1.5-dev17 got released. Oh well, I just had to upgrade so I packaged it for my own usage ;-). I also updated the dependencies a bit because I am compiling with SSL and Compression enabled. Just get it at http://www.roedie.nl/downloads/haproxy/haproxy-1.5-dev17/.

Here’s a new Debian package of HAProxy. Today it’s the latest and greatest snapshot of 20121226. If you are running any of my previous versions I suggest you update to this one since a lot of bug fixes went in. Just get it at http://www.roedie.nl/downloads/haproxy/20121226/

After some bugs were found in the dev13 release, Willy quickly released a dev14 release. You can grab the packaged version at http://www.roedie.nl/downloads/haproxy/haproxy-1.5-dev14/ and test around a bit.

And right after I created the package I realized that I needed to enable compression and SSL. Please make sure you download the dev13-2 package if you want to use those features.

HAProxy 1.5-dev13 got released today. So, I’ve made another quick package which you can get at http://www.roedie.nl/downloads/haproxy/haproxy-1.5-dev13/.

It has lots of new features including SSL and Compression (which I both haven’t tested) and tons of bug fixes. Great work by all developers.

Today we had a leap second. I have to say… going from the year 1999 to 2000 gave me less problems….

After I forgot to post about HAProxy 1.5-dev9, I can now post that I’ve also packaged HAProxy 1.5-dev10. You can get it at http://www.roedie.nl/downloads/haproxy/haproxy-1.5-dev10/.

If anyone is interested in getting these updates through apt-get, then drop me a line, I might set up an apt repository for easy updates.

Tahtahtahtaaaaah! And then there was a package of HAProxy 1.5-dev8. You can fetch it at: http://www.roedie.nl/downloads/haproxy/dev8/
