Problems Reloading

I am just getting started with haproxy and want to use it to do content-switching. I'm having a little trouble reloading configuration changes with my current config because when I execute the following command:  haproxy -f /etc/haproxy/haproxy.conf -p $(</var/run/ -st $(</var/run/

I get this error:

Starting frontend the_proxy: cannot bind socket

some of my config settings are:




  pidfile /var/run/

  maxconn 4096


  mode http
  clitimeout 60000
  srvtimeout 30000

  contimeout 4000
  option httpclose

I then go on to define a frontend and a few backends. Any idea why I can't reload the config without manually killing and starting haproxy? Thanks

Almost forgot!

Ubuntu 7.10 with 2.6.22-15 kernel
