EZproxy Server Host Updates
EZproxy server host/domain updates are performed on a weekly basis (generally Mondays), after fresh SFX journal title profiles are loaded by CARLI. Infrequently, but on occasion, an authorized domain/host will receive activation before the EZproxy update is applied. WIU users who receive an error message regarding a Host that needs to be added (example shown below) should paste the error message in an email to email@example.com.
To allow http://www.abc123.com to be used in a starting point URL, your EZproxy administrator must first authorize the hostname of this URL in the config.txt file. Within this database's section of config.txt, either the following line must be added: Host www.abc123.com or, alternatively, a RedirectSafe for this host or domain may be appropriate. After editing config.txt, the EZproxy server must be restarted to make changes take effect.
