  • what version of haproxy are you using? Nov 27, 2018 at 7:37
  • HA-Proxy version 1.5.4 2014/09/02

  • ssl-default-bind-options seems to have been implemented in 1.5.7, so no wonder it doesn't work with 1.5.4. It should work with 1.6.9 though. Nov 27, 2018 at 7:44
  • hm ... seems I misread that news entry. It doesn't say that the option was implemented with that version. Sorry about that. Nov 27, 2018 at 7:53

  log local0 debug
  ssl-default-bind-options no-sslv3
  tune.ssl.default-dh-param 2048

Same question. But I do this.

[root@ops ~]# haproxy -vv | grep OpenSSL
Built without OpenSSL support (USE_OPENSSL not set)

So, need remake haproxy and reinstall it.

tar -zxvf haproxy***.tar.gz
yum install openssl openssl-devel pcre pcre-devel gcc -y
make install


haproxy check
