Installation

When you sign up you will be provided with a unique username and password and a connection string that you can use when configuring your proxy service in your application:  

http://username:password@static.quotaguard.com:9293

  

All requests that you make via this proxy will appear to the destination server to originate from one of the two static IPs you will be assigned when you sign up.


We recommend you store the connection string in an environment variable QUOTAGUARDSTATIC_URL. If you have signed up via the add-ons platform on Heroku or cloudControl this variable will be automatically set in your production environment.


Integration

PHP cURL is the easiest way to make HTTP requests via QuotaGuard Static.


 

<?php

function lookup(){
  $quotaguard_env = getenv("QUOTAGUARDSTATIC_URL");
  $quotaguard = parse_url($quotaguard_env);

  $proxyUrl       = $quotaguard['host'].":".$quotaguard['port'];
  $proxyAuth       = $quotaguard['user'].":".$quotaguard['pass'];

  $url = "http://ip.jsontest.com/";

  $ch = curl_init();
  curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_URL, $url);
  curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_RETURNTRANSFER, 1);
  curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_PROXY, $proxyUrl);
  curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_PROXYAUTH, CURLAUTH_BASIC);
  curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_PROXYUSERPWD, $proxyAuth);
  $response = curl_exec($ch);
  return $response;
}

$res = lookup();
print_r($res);

?>
