Hi Willy,

I've upgraded HAProxy from 1.3.12 to I had to manually create /usr/share/haproxy directory because new haproxy was throwing an alert (that it couldn't chroot to /usr/share/haproxy) and the haproxy process was not running. I would like to know the reason why it needed /usr/share/haproxy directory? Is there a way to get around it?

OK, please first upgrade to which fixes several minor issues (and maybe yours). Also, can you start the process with both -V and -d options ? It will be far more verbose and will return any error it might discover.

I hope it's nothing serious, otherwise I will do my best to fix the problem.
