Multisite and Proxies (4 posts)

    I've installed the Multisite Version of WordPress on my work's server with much ease and success, but I've ran into a few issues.

    - The first issue is that, my wordpress install when ever I try to look for a plug-in, it's giving me this error "An unexpected error occurred. Something may be wrong with WordPress.org or this server’s configuration. If you continue to have problems, please try the support forums."
    - The second issue is that none of the feeds that are pulled from WordPress are working "RSS Error: A feed could not be found at http://wordpress.org/news/feed/. A feed with an invalid mime type may fall victim to this error, or SimplePie was unable to auto-discover it.. Use force_feed() if you are certain this URL is a real feed."

    I understand that the server is behind a load balancer and a firewall, and I was able obtain a proxy host and port address. I looked up how to set up a proxy connection and all of the resources I found was to add a few lines of code in to wp-config.php file. I followed all the steps but I am still getting the errors?

    Please help!

    define('WP_PROXY_HOST', '');
    define('WP_PROXY_PORT', '8080');
    define('WP_PROXY_USERNAME', 'my_user_name');
    define('WP_PROXY_PASSWORD', 'my_password');
    define('WP_PROXY_BYPASS_HOSTS', 'localhost, http://www.example.com');

  2. Multisite doesn't work on non-Port 80, last I checked.

    This proxyport number was just an example I found..thats not the real one

  4. Well ... All your problems are because your install can't reach WordPress.ORG

    Which is neither a WP nor a Multisite error. Open up your firewall or ignore the errors and move on :)
