Using PHP’s Curl functions behind a Proxy

Using PHP’s Curl functions even if the net is accessible only thru a proxy. This is the only way curl can be used if you use GoDaddy’s hosting.

<?php
ch = curl_init("http://rss.news.yahoo.com/rss/topstories");

curl_setopt(ch, CURLOPT_HEADER, false);
curl_setopt(ch, CURLOPT_RETURNTRANSFER, 1);
curl_setopt(ch, CURLOPT_PROXY, "http://192.168.0.15:80");
curl_setopt(ch, CURLOPT_PROXYPORT, 80);
//curl_setopt (ch, CURLOPT_PROXYUSERPWD, "username:password");

data = curl_exec (ch);
curl_close(ch);
printdata;
?>
