i am trying to install HAproxy infront of my webserver.
usually my webserver listens on port 80 and since we have 5 ip address
serving 5 different sites on the same physical server the webserver
listens to all these ips and proxy the traffic to the relavent app
now the problem is if want to loadbalance i should install HAproxy on
port 80 and there lies the problem. Because HAproxy as i know after
going through the config files for the last 2 days doesn’t listen to
more than one ip. now since i have traffic related to 5 ips coming on
one port i have no clue how to make HAProxy listen to all that traffic
and then proxy that to their app servers.
i am really amused HAproxy listens to only one ip per port.
looking for help from you guys.
