!!!! Plugin Proxy Problems !!! (2 posts)

    Geeeee... I've spent hours trying to nail out HOW to get WP to use my proxy!!! I've included the following to wp-config.php:

    define('WP_PROXY_HOST', 'www-gw.foi.se');
    define('WP_PROXY_PORT', '8080');

    Restarted my Bitnami stack (running WP on Windows), but when I try to update plugin settings I get timeouts and I'm 100% sure they're proxy related! Why, oooh why, isn't there a simple proxy settings area in Settings-General or whatever... in WP???

    FYI I've also tried to add some 'WP_PROXY_USERNAME/PASSWORD' settings to no avail...

    I really, really hope there is anybody out there who knows what to do...


  2. Does your proxy require a userid and password?


    Also check your proxy logs to confirm that your proxy is even getting those update requests.
