I have been trying to configure HAProxy to send traffic to different backend servers based on hostnames. I tried using the directions found in How to divert traffic based on hostname using HAProxy? but unfortunately am not having luck.
I am trying to have it so that if a client goes to bk1.domain.com:80, traffic is sent to the "backend1" backend. Similarly, if someone goes to bk2.domain.com:80, traffic should be sent to the "backend2" backend. All other traffic should be sent to the "default" backend. For clarification, domain.com, bk1.domain.com, bk2.domain.com all resolve to the same IP address.
Unfortunately, when going to bk1.domain.com or bk2.domain.com, the "default" backend is used for all requests. It seems that HAProxy is not recognizing the host headers and as a result is unable to forward requests to the appropriate backend.
Below is the current haproxy.cfg. Any help is appreciated.
