Update B3 to B4 Problem: Connection timed out

Hi

I just tried to update my Beta 3 forum to Beta 4 version.

Clicking on "update" tab gives me the following message:
General Error
Connection timed out

Please notify the board administrator or webmaster


I know what the problem is: my web server hasn't direct web access, I must get through a proxy. The server is running PHP4 so I don't know any way to say to PHP "hey there is a proxy right here, could you use it please ?" So when I need to open an URL in PHP on this server, I use the function fsockopen and do some HTTP GET request using my proxy...

My question is: how to update my forum using a proxy ? Is there something to configure in phpBB, if not will it be included in future versions ?

Thanks in advance for your answers, and congratulations to all the development team, your forum is wonderfull :D

This is not supported and will never be supported, sorry.
