Can Haproxy and Squid co-exist?



  • Can both of these be installed (2.3) provided Haproxy is used as a reverse proxy only and squid is not?



  • Sure. No particular problems with that combination that i'm aware of anyhow..

    The only way they would conflict is if they attempted to bind to the same IP address and port. So long as they're using different ports or IP addresses to bind, there would be no conflict even if both were used in a reverse proxy role.

    I was thinking Squid might come with the reverse proxy enabled and listening on 80 by default, which is what I have HAProxy listening on currently.
    I figured once I set them up there wouldn't be much (or any) issue.

    Ah, well neither of them start/run until you enable them, so if you get them set how you want and then turn them on, you're fine.
