I've got LAMP up and working and I'm currently hosting a joomla install on the server. I was wondering if there's an easy way to get a web proxy working on my site. I'd like to be able to use it just like you would at hidemyass.com. By simply supplying a url it'll provide the proxy services for me. I've looked through joomla's extensions library and don't see any extensions that'd provide that functionality. I was hoping that there'd just be some prepackaged web proxy application I could install.

Anyone out there know of any simple way of getting this up and running. I've looked at Squid but that looks like it's primarily a proxy server intended for internal network users. I didn't see any sort of web proxy feature to install on a web server there. Any advice on this would be greatly appreciated.

I believe you are searching for something like Glype Proxy?

RobbanC,

That's exactly the sort of thing I'm looking for. Thank you for your response.

Sh1n1g4m1,

TOR is a cool tool that I've used in the past for anonymous browsing. But it wasn't exactly what I was looking for in this instance though. Thanks for the suggestion anyway.

Great! Glad I could help. :)

I tried Glype myself last night, just to test. The installation is simple, simply download, unpack and upload the contents to your server.

First all I got was a white, blank screen when I tried to use the proxy. Found out the curl-package was not installed.

If that happens to you, just


sudo apt-get install curl

and


sudo apt-get install php5-curl

after that, restart Apache


sudo /etc/init.d/apache2 restart

Now it should work. At least, that is what I had to do.
Good luck.:)
