Hello,

I finally managed to get a clearing/someone to open the connection for our server to access update.limesurvey.org.

The problem is that I have to use a proxy server to connect to update.limesurvey.org . I'm not sure what is the best way to do so. I had a look into the file admin/classes/http/http.php and saw that there are some proxy related variables I could set. But what will happen if I update LimeSurvery, won't I loose/override this file? Is it possible to set a proxy in the config.php file? Can I use my Apache and e.g. mod_proxy to solve this problem?
Mit freundlichen Grüßen/Best regards,

Hello,

me managed to use the ComfortUpdate by manually editing the following lines in the admin/classes/http/http.php file:
var $proxy_host_name="111.111.111.111";
var $proxy_host_port=1234;
(111 and 1234 are just examples how it could look like). We now updated our installation to 12358 and it worked fine. Okay, we might have to redo the "edit http.php" step but I think it's easier than doing a manual update.

Edit:
Added information to
docs.limesurvey.org/tiki-index.php?page=...pdate.limesurvey.com

Can you please file a bug report so we ask our developers to make a config.php setting for this. Editing the core file doesn't seem to be a handy solution to me.
