I am pleased to announce the immediate availability of HAProxy in
version 1.8 on CentOS Linux 7 x86_64,
delivered via a Software Collection (SCL) built by the SCLo Special
Interest Group (<a href="https://wiki.centos.org/SpecialInterestGroup/SCLo" title="https://wiki.centos.org/SpecialInterestGroup/SCLo">https://wiki.centos.org/SpecialInterestGroup/SCLo</a>).

QuickStart
# 1. Install a package with repository for your system:
# On CentOS, install package centos-release-scl available in CentOS
repository:
$ sudo yum install centos-release-scl

# On RHEL, enable RHSCL repository for you system:
$ sudo yum-config-manager --enable rhel-server-rhscl-7-rpms

# 2. Install the collection:
$ sudo yum install rh-haproxy18

# 3. Start using software collections:
$ scl enable rh-haproxy18 bash

At this point you should be able to use varnish just as a normal
application. Some usage examples follow:

$ systemctl start rh-haproxy18-haproxy

This collections is CentOS-based rebuild built by SCLo SIG community,
and the packages have been available in Red Hat Software Collections 3.1
for RHEL:

<a href="https://access.redhat.com/documentation/en-us/red_hat_software_collections/3/html/3.1_release_notes/" title="https://access.redhat.com/documentation/en-us/red_hat_software_collections/3/html/3.1_release_notes/">https://access.redhat.com/documentation/en-us/red_hat_software_collectio...</a>

So, for RHEL-based builds, follow the steps in the documentation above.
