Setting up confluence with HAProxy

I would like to setup Confluence with HAProxy, but am unsure how to start.  Has anyone done this or have any examples to follow?  I currently have 1 server running confluence.

Has anyone managed to get this working? I have a basic configuration working, but it appears to have broken WebSudo...



    log local2

    chroot      /var/lib/haproxy

    pidfile     /var/run/

    maxconn     10000

    user        root

    group       root


    tune.ssl.default-dh-param 2048

    stats socket /var/lib/haproxy/stats


    mode                    http

    log                     global

    option                  httplog

    option                  dontlognull

    option http-server-close

    option forwardfor       except

    option                  redispatch

    retries                 3

    timeout http-request    10s

    timeout queue           1m

    timeout connect         10s

    timeout client          1m

    timeout server          1m

    timeout http-keep-alive 10s

    timeout check           10s

    maxconn                 10000


    stats enable

    stats uri /proxy-stats

    stats realm HAproxy\ Statistics

    stats auth user:pass

frontend  confluence_web_insecure

    bind *:80

    redirect scheme https if !{ ssl_fc }


frontend confluence_web_secure

    mode http

    bind *:443 ssl crt /foo.pem

    reqadd X-Forwarded-Proto:\ https

    reqadd X-Forwarded-Port:\ 443

    default_backend confluence_app


backend confluence_app

    option httplog

    option forwardfor

    option http-server-close

    option httpchk

    mode        http

    balance     roundrobin

    cookie      JSESSIONID prefix indirect nocache

    server node01 ssl verify none cookie s1

    server node02 ssl verify none cookie s2


take a look at this confluence knowledgebase article: 

If you remove the parameter "indirect" in cookies options the problem should be solved. For me it worked fine :-) 

Best regards
