Support » Fixing WordPress » Setup WP proxy to use SSH tunnel

  • [ Moderator note: moved to Fixing WordPress. ]

    Hello,

    our webserver completely behind a firewall. I cannot directly connect from it to any other server outside of the firewall. However, I can create a dynamic SSH tunnel. It should be possible to use this tunnel to install WP plugins or to use the wp-to-twitter plugin. Unfortunately, I don’t know how to setup the proxy config in the wp-config.php. My current setting is

    define('WP_PROXY_HOST', '');
    define('WP_PROXY_PORT', '8080');
    define('WP_PROXY_USERNAME', '');
    define('WP_PROXY_PASSWORD', '');
    define('WP_PROXY_BYPASS_HOSTS', 'localhost');
    define('WP_USEPROXY','TRUE');

    but it is not working. The tunnel itself is prepared separately by
    ssh -D 8080 my-tunnel-server
    using ssh-keys (thus, no password necessary).

    If I would use curl, th should then be
    curl -x socks5://localhost:8080 $destination_URL

    Can anyone tell me how to setup the wp-config.php correctly? Thank you very much in advance!
