PHProxy is a PHP-based web proxy script, and has been around for over 10 years, in various incarnations. Originally launched in 2004 by author Abdullah Arif, the project is now inactive and no updates have been made to the script since the 20th January 2007. The project is still hosted by SourceForge, and is available for free download from here: http://sourceforge.net/projects/poxy/
For simply bypassing firewalls or other blocked websites it still works well for most people's needs.
A continuation of the project has emerged in 2018, and aims to continue development with more modern functionality: https://github.com/PHProxy/phproxy
Here we explain the different points of information in the table of proxies above.
Info - Mouseover this icon to see extended details about this proxy, including it's hosting location, speed and uptime.
Proxy Address - This is the URL of the proxy website. Some of the URLs are snipped to keep the table neat, but clicking on any link will open up the proxy in a new browser window. Entries with the padlock icon () preceding them means that the website utilises SSL (Secure Socket Layer) encryption for additional security.
IP Address - This is the IP address of the server that the proxy website is hosted on. Many proxies may be hosted on the same IP address.
Country - This is the country that the server the proxy is hosted on is physically located. Any information given in brackets indicates the region of that country, though this is not always available.
Last Checked - This tells you the time and date that the proxy was last checked to see if it is working correctly. The information is presented as follows - year, month, day, time (in 24-hour clock). All times are in the GMT time zone.
Software - This indicates what software script is powering the proxy server.
SSL? - This indicates whether the web proxy can access websites that utilise SSL (Secure Socket Layer encryption). A green tick icon indicates 'yes', whilst a red cross icon indicates 'no'.
Health - This is an indicator of how 'healthy' we think the proxy server is. A green 'Excellent' entry means that we have had no problems connecting to this proxy, whilst a red 'Poor' entry means that we've had major problems accessing the proxy in the past.
