At Proxville we are going to discuss in detail about PhProxy Script and its creator.
What is PhProxy Script?
PHP Http Proxy is a php script for taking web pages from one server and processes so that your main server is protected/hidden. Useful for those who have or require indirect access to the web and or their server. You can find many web based php proxy sites at Proxville.
PHProxy Script is written and developed in PHP by Abdullah Arif to bypass firewalls and other proxy restrictions through a web interface very similar to the popular CGIProxy.

PHProxy Script Status
The latest version is 0.5 beta2 from January 20, 2007. As of September 7, 2007 the owner/developer gave up the active development. He later (December 10, 2007) posted a statement on the website that his decision was made because he feels it immoral to provide such a service since the vast majority of people use it only to surf porn.
In 2008, Phillip Sacre made a fork on Google code which he called php-web-proxy and in 2009 someone published a mod of phproxy with YouTube support named phproxyyoutubemod
