When using HA Proxy in front of Bitbucket Server and trying to clone a Bitbucket Server Repository over HTTP the process fails with the following ERROR:

$ git clone
Cloning into 'myrepo'...
Username for ';: <username> Password for 'http://&lt;username&gt;@;:
remote: Counting objects: 3497, done.
remote: Compressing objects: 100% (1264/1264), done.
remote: Total 3497 (delta 2150), reused 3473 (delta 2138) Receiving objects: 100% (3497/3497), 1.19 MiB, done.
Resolving deltas: 100% (2150/2150), done.
>>> error: RPC failed; result=18, HTTP code = 200 <<<


This happens because the HA Proxy is missing a configuration on the config file, the mode http :

listen http-in
       bind *:80
       server localhost-bitbucket-http localhost:7990


You must add the configuration mentioned above to your config file:

listen http-in
       bind *:80
       mode http
       server localhost-bitbucket-http localhost:7990

After that restart the HA Proxy Daemon and try again.

If you want to use HAPRoxy for SSH as well, refer to the guide below:
