- Global

+ stats: enable stats, curently only via a unix socket which can be set to a path with custom permissions
+ user: sets the user haproxy shall run as
+ group: sets the group haproxy shall run as
+ chroot: allows you to turn on chroot and set a directory
+ daemon: allows you to turn daemon mode on and off

- Default

+ log: set the default log
+ mode: sets the mode (i.e. http)
+ retries: sets the number of retries
+ options: an array of options that is simply looped with no special treatment
+ timeouts: an array of timeouts that is simply looped with no special treatment
+ errorfiles: an array of k:v errorfiles to point to the correct file matching an HTTP error code

- Frontend; Frontend(s) is a list of the frontends you desire to have in your haproxy setup
Per frontend you can set:

+ name: the name haproxy will use for the frontend
+ bind: the bind string: this allows you to set the IP, Port and other paramters for the bind
+ redirect: add a redirect line, an unparsed string like in the backend
+ reqadd: an array of reqadd statements. Looped over and put in the configuration, no parsing
+ default_backend: sets the default backend
+ acls: a list of acls, not parsed, simply looped and put in to the configuration
+ blocks: a list of block statements, not parsed, simply looped and put in to the configuration
+ use_backends: a list of use_backend statements, looped over, not parsed

- Backend; Backend(s) is a list of the backends you desire to have in your haproxy setup, per backend you can set:

+ name: set the backend name, used in the frontend references by haproxy
+ balance: set the balance type, string
+ redirect: if set, can be used to redirect; simply a string, not parsed
+ servers: a list of servers this backend will contact, is looped over; per server you can set:

+ name: name of the server for haproxy
+ host: the host to be contacted
+ port: the port to contact the server on
+ check: set to check to enable checking

- For global, default, frontend, listener, backend and server it is possible to use the "extra" option for more rare settings not mentioned above.


Make sure ``haproxy`` service is running.
