First check Apache supports session stickness in PHP application environment, if yes then you
can go with your current configuration instead of HAproxy.

Your non-complex solution involves replacing the load balancing httpd server with a load balancing
HAProxy server.

I fail to see how that decreases complexity. You have to learn how to configure two things,
instead of one thing twice.

HAProxy also cannot serve static files, whilst a load balancing httpd can.
