I want to install haproxy on my ubuntu server buy the haproxy version from the 10.04 repo is 1.3.x version.
I wanted the latest build 1.4.13, since it has improvements and bugfixes.
What i did: 1. installed the haproxy from the official repo: apt-get install haproxy. 2. Download source file from the website, and compile it. 3. swapped the new haproxy with the old.
so far it works, but i as if i should be aware of something?
Why i did the following? since apt-get creates a init.d startup script, /etc/haproxy.cfg file, and user and group.
