Site blocked! Make Your own Web Proxy using WordPress

If you are unable to access a particular website, either due to government censorship (like youtube in bangladesh) or because your employer has blocked the site (hoping that it will make people more productive), you can use an online proxy server to quickly and easily bypass the filters.

There are tons of proxies available online and most of them are free but supported by ads, but if you would like to keep things under your own control, without revealing your tracks to a third-party website, you can build your own proxy site using WordPress.

How to:

It takes less than a minute to make your site a proxy with wordpress.  All you need is a website (or blog) running WordPress.org software and the free RePress plugin.

Step 1: Make sure that Permalinks are enabled for your WordPress installation. Open your WordPress admin dashboard, choose Settings -> Permalinks and select any format for your Permalinks other than the default option. Save the changes.

Step 2: From the dashboard itself, go to Plugins -> Add New and search for Repress in the WordPress plugin repository. Install and activate the plugin.

Step 3: Next we need to white-list website domains that should be accessible though our new WordPress based proxy server. Go to Settings -> Repress and add one or more domain names that you would like to access from work. Save.

Your proxy server is now ready for use. If your WordPress site URL is example.com, you can access a site like youtube.com using the URL http://abc.com/proxy/youtube.com. All the internal links on the YouTube website are rewritten to be served though the proxy site.
