#17096: WP_HTTP_Proxy :: Host check prevents proxying to local

 Blog URL check should be '''optional''' by defining them in

 Forcing this check denies me from proxying my blog URL through,
 which is needed because I'm ProxyPass-ing certain /directories to another



 <VirtualHost *:80>

 ServerName mysite.com
 ProxyPass /special http://www.mysite.com/special



 /special is on a separate server running another CMS. Its IP is hardcoded
 in the server's hosts file.


 I will have this in my wp-config.php for the WP http requests to work.


 define('WP_PROXY_HOST', '');
 define('WP_PROXY_PORT', '80');
