Proxy Server? (3 posts)

    I'm using wordpress in a corporate environment, and of course I'm behind a firewall. This causes the dashboard to load slowly and eventually not load completely. Is it possible to define a proxy server that WP should use whenever it gets the feeds from the WP devblog?

    You being behind a firewall should have no effect on your website on a seperate server. WP doesn't need any proxy information unless it's hosted on a server behind a proxy.

    I think the point Ruairi was trying to make is that his corporate proxy does not allow direct connection to the internet, only connection through a proxy.

    Regardless, I had the same problem. A grep oxy * in ./wordpress gave no result, but in wp-includes I found that class-snoopy.php contained:

    var $proxy_host = "";
    // proxy host to use
    var $proxy_port = "";
    // proxy port to use

    After populating them appropriately with the IP and port of my http proxy, dashboard loads just fine.
