Step-by-Step Guide for Server Setup and Script Execution

  1. Download and Install XAMPP:

    • Go to the XAMPP website.
    • Download the version suitable for your operating system (Windows, Linux, macOS).
    • Follow the installation instructions.
  2. Start XAMPP:

    • Launch XAMPP Control Panel.
    • Start the Apache module by clicking “Start” next to Apache.
  3. Prepare Your PHP Script:

    • Open a text editor (like Notepad++ or Visual Studio Code).
    • Copy the PHP script above into the editor.
    • Save the file as scrape_proxies.php in the htdocs directory of your XAMPP installation (e.g., C:\xampp\htdocs\ on Windows, /Applications/XAMPP/htdocs/ on macOS).
  4. Run the PHP Script:

    • Open your web browser.
    • Navigate to http://localhost/scrape_proxies.php.
    • The script will fetch proxies, check them, remove duplicates, and write the valid ones to http.txt, socks4.txt, and socks5.txt.
  5. Access the Proxy Lists:

    • HTTP proxies: http://localhost/http.txt.
    • SOCKS4 proxies: http://localhost/socks4.txt.
    • SOCKS5 proxies: http://localhost/socks5.txt.

W chadgpt for this one!
OB1 had feature like to load proxies from multiple url’s at once and u could set timer to auto reaload them in every X minutes, but in OB2 this feature in not present i think, not that i use it but it’s cool to have many features haha :smiley:

You can indeed do this in OB2, but you have to configure it at the job level, unlike OB1 where all jobs inherited from the same settings. Please read How to use proxies | OpenBullet 2

OB2 has more flexibility in this case. Eventually I will also make it possible to save proxy sources and load them in other jobs for ease of use.
