Package: Tor PHP Get Proxy List

Sometimes it is necessary to work around network constraints and use a proxy server to send HTTP requests to remote server.

A PHP script can be used to send any HTTP requests via a given server.

If you do not have access to a your own proxy server, you can try using the Proxy IP List site to find available servers.




In this article you can learn about:

How to Find Proxy Servers with PHP to Send a Request to Another Server

What is a HTTP Proxy Server?

A proxy server is computer accessible from the Internet that can be used to forward network connections to another computer also on the Internet.

There are several types of proxy servers. If you want to use a proxy server to access a Web page from another site, you need to use a HTTP server.

Why You Would Need to Use a HTTP Proxy Server?

Sometimes you need to use a computer from a project that is in a network that is not configured to be able accessing any other computer on the Internet.

This may happen in different circumstances. For instance, sometimes the Internet network nodes need to be reconfigured to perform changes in the routing of communications between different computers.

Although in this case it may be a temporary situation, you may not be able to wait until the network routing is sorted.

How Can You Use the Tor PHP Get Proxy List package to Get a List of Available Proxy Servers?

The use of this package is pretty simple. Just put the class script in a Web server that you control and just by accessing the page with torgetproxy.php script.

You can also run the script using PHP from the command line like this:

php torgetproxy.php

This will make it output a list of proxy servers obtained from the Proxy IP List Web site. It will output a list like this:

Array
(
    [0] => 187.85.196.96:8080
    [1] => 105.174.5.146:8080
    [2] => 183.88.114.86:8080
    [3] => 202.73.51.146:80
    [4] => 92.222.107.29:3128
    [5] => 92.222.109.68:3128
    [6] => 92.222.107.153:3128
    [7] => 203.37.37.143:80
    [8] => 47.89.51.239:8088
    [9] => 201.87.244.1:5555
    [10] => 190.15.200.31:8080
    [11] => 124.120.239.54:8080
    [12] => 5.135.204.109:3128
    [13] => 92.222.107.181:3128
)

Then you just pick a proxy server from the list and pass it to a PHP script that you can run like you can see below. You need to copy the list of proxy servers removing the square brackets and adding quotes to the proxy server addresses.

<?php
    $list =
    Array
    (
        0 => '187.85.196.96:8080',
        1 => '105.174.5.146:8080',
        2 => '183.88.114.86:8080',
        3 => '202.73.51.146:80',
        4 => '92.222.107.29:3128',
        5 => '92.222.109.68:3128',
        6 => '92.222.107.153:3128',
        7 => '203.37.37.143:80',
        8 => '47.89.51.239:8088',
        9 => '201.87.244.1:5555',
        10 => '190.15.200.31:8080',
        11 => '124.120.239.54:8080',
        12 => '5.135.204.109:3128',
        13 => '92.222.107.181:3128',
    )
    ;

    $url = 'https://www.phpclasses.org/';
    foreach($list as $proxy)
    {
        $proxy_string = "tcp://" . $proxy;
        $options = array(
            'http' => array(
                'proxy' => $proxy_string,
                'timeout'=>3
            )
        );
        $context = stream_context_create($options);
        echo "Trying to access page ". $url.
            " using proxy server ".$proxy."... ";
        flush();
        $page = @file_get_contents( $url, false, $context);
        if($page !== false)
        {
            echo "Succeeded!\n";
            break;
        }
        echo "Failed!\n";
    }
    if($page === false)
        echo "It was not possible to fetch the page ".$url.
           " with any of the listed proxy servers.\n";
    else
        echo "The page ".$url." was retrieved with success. "."
            "It has a length of ".strlen($page)." bytes.\n";
?>
