At work we have to use a proxy to basically access port 80 for example, we have our own custom logins for each user.
My temporary workaround is using curl to basically login as myself through a proxy and access the external data I need.
Is there some sort of advanced php setting I can set so that internally whenever it tries to invoke something like
file_get_contents() it always goes through a proxy? I'm on Windows ATM so it'd be a pain to recompile if that's the only way.
The reason my workaround is temporary is because I need a solution that's generic and works for multiple users instead of using one user's credentials ( Ive considered requesting a separate user account solely to do this but passwords change often and this technique needs to be deployed throughout a dozen or more sites ). I don't want to hard-code credentials basically to use the curl workaround.
file_get_contents()over/through a proxy that doesn't require authentication, something like this should do :
(I'm not able to test this one : my proxy requires an authentication)
Of course, replacing the IP and port of my proxy by those which are OK for yours ;-)
If you're getting that kind of error :
It means your proxy requires an authentication.
If the proxy requires an authentication, you'll have to add a couple of lines, like this :
Same thing about IP and port, and, this time, also LOGIN and PASSWORD ;-) Check out all valid http options.
Now, you are passing an Proxy-Authorization header to the proxy, containing your login and password.
And... The page should be displayed ;-)
