How to setup New Relic on a DO Ubuntu (NR is asking for a https proxy)

I have no idea how to enable the install of the New Relic script on a DO server, as it requires a http proxy, and seems a bit over the top to install some proxy service just to install NR.

I am using New Relic on several other servers, to figure out performance issues with Wordpress and database.

Anybody has some pointers?

As already mentioned HTTP proxy should not be needed. As you are planning to monitor a WordPress website, I believe that you just need to install the New Relic PHP agent.

Are you installing another agent?



A proxy isn’t required, you can leave it blank, unless you have egress filters enabled. The new relic agent just connects to the new relic API automatically.

What installer are you using?
