This snippet shows you how to use haproxy to redirect http traffic to https or any other website.
This snippet was tested on haproxy 1.5.
I'm developing a desktop monitoring app, Leaf Node Monitoring, open source, but paid. For Windows, Linux & Android, go check it out.

To redirect traffic from a haproxy frontend, use the following config:
frontend example-frontend bind 10.20.30.40:80 redirect location https://example.org:443
As you can see, the
redirect location can be anything, for example, the ssl
version of the frontend or any other website.
