Sets the proxy server for outgoing web traffic.


ProxyServer=<hostname|IP address>:<port>


In case outgoing web traffic is only allowed through a proxy server, you need to inform eZ Publish about this (otherwise the system will not be able to do certain tasks). You can either use the hostname or the IP address of the proxy server, followed by a colon and a port number. Most proxy servers allow anonymous connections. However, if the proxy server requires authentication, you will also need to provide a valid username/password combination using the "User" and "Password" settings.

Note that CURL support must be enabled in PHP, otherwise outbound connections via proxy will not work.

Note : ProxyServer settings will only work for linkcheck.php/rssimport.php or downloading site packages in setup wizard.


Example 1


This configuration tells the system to use an anonymous proxy server, "" and port 3128 to access the web. In this case, a username/password combination is not needed.

Example 2


This configuration tells the system to use "" and port 3128 to access the web. In addition, a username/password combination is provided because the proxy server requires authentication.
