[resolved] Akismet and cURL (2 posts)

    My host requires me to use a proxy for outgoing connections. I need to use CURL to connect, and I'm pretty sure that this is why Akismet hasn't been working for me. I have never used CURL and I couldn't even guess as to how to modify Akismet (or is there a more general way to modify WP outgoing connections?) so that it will continue to check my comments. Does anyone have any suggestions?

    In case anyone else has found this problem, this is how I fixed it:

    There's more info on there to set up how your site to work with proxies...
