    I thought I've read all the articles here about setting up HAProxy as a load balancer with two back end apache servers. My problem is several of our sites have SSL's, and I thought I understood that HAProxy would not works without modifications.

    I just read another article on this at The author claims his setup works fine with SSL's as is. I was wondering if anyone here had any opinions on if this would actually work. 'm just trying to find a way to get two apache web servers, running on Linux/Xen machines, with SSL sites, to work behind a load balancer.

    Hi, HAProxy can work natively with HTTPS sites when it is in TCP mode, just pass through all the 443 traffic (job done). If you need persistence to use src ip stick table method. OR you can use stunnel OR Pound to terminate the HTTPS then forward to HAProxy as HTTP and use HAProxy in full http mode where you can insert cookies......
    You can even make the whole thing transparent but that gets a bit tricky :). Just Google for HAProxy & TProxy...
