Hi folks,
This is a bit of a long shot but maybe someone out there knows the solution
to this one.
My school has its own Ubuntu/Apache webserver for the school website, Moodle
and all sorts of stuuf for my mutimedia students, etc.
I have revamped the school website using Drupal 6. Drupal 6 has a handy
update status module which periodically checks for core and module updates.
Of course, our server sits behind the DEECD router and firewall and all
internat access is through an IP proxy. Consequently Drupal update doesn't
have http access.
Does anyone know how I might create persistent http access for the
webserver? I've been looking at PEAR module but haven't figured out how they
might be used.
With server system updates, for example, apt-get has a config file which
stores a username and password and proxy configuration.
