Proxies in WordPress + WP Web scraper

Using proxies to make requests via WP Web scraper is same as using the HTTP API with a Proxy. The allowed Proxy settings for the wp-config.php are the following:

# HTTP Proxies
# Used for e.g. in Intranets
# Fixes Feeds as well
# Defines the proxy adresse.
define( 'WP_PROXY_HOST', '' );
# Defines the proxy port.
define( 'WP_PROXY_PORT', '8080' );
# Defines the proxy username.
define( 'WP_PROXY_USERNAME', 'my_user_name' );
# Defines the proxy password.
define( 'WP_PROXY_PASSWORD', 'my_password' );
# Allows you to define some adresses which
# shouldn't be passed through a proxy.
define( 'WP_PROXY_BYPASS_HOSTS', 'localhost,' );
