Back in May, I asked if BackupBuddy supported working through an http proxy (as our sites are behind a corporate firewall). The answer then was no, and I went to another developer, who was happy to add some lines of code checking for the existence of WP_PROXY_HOST, and setting curl options as appropriate. I've been backing up several of my sites to Amazon S3 with this "other" backup plugin.

Now I've heard about BackupBuddy 5 - any news of proxy work?

Hi Jason,

There is a current feature request on it. It is not yet implemented though it will now get bumped to the devs. (don't think anyone else has requested this so far so the current feature request may have been from you before).

Welcome to the forums. Be sure to post your questions in the correct forum and don't forget about the new and improved search function located in the top right of the forum pages. The gear/wheel symbol next to the search box will give you more options for advanced searching. Thank you and have a nice day.
