Configuring HAProxy as load balancer in Bitbucket Edited

Hi Team.

I am very new to this configuration, Please consider me as a rookie.

We recently upgraded our bitbucket server to datacenter and decided to move the systems in a cluster using HAProxy as a load balancer. I tried following the minimal documentation available in Atlassian site and followed different documentation and got Haproxy running with version  “1.6.3 2015/12/25”.

Then tried configuring the haproxy.cfg file and I am able to configure with port 80 however port 443 doesn’t work. I have the company provided certificate with extension .pem.

Everytime, I try to configure 443 I am not able to start the haproxy service and getting an error,

 root@balqhaproxy01:/etc/ssl/certs# service haproxy start

Job for haproxy.service failed because the control process exited with error code. See "systemctl status haproxy.service" and "journalctl -xe" for details.

And here is the configuration that I use in the haproxy.cfg. ( Our bitbucket is currently working with 7990 port)
