If you’re having persistent troubles with Craft failing to install or with the InVision Sync app not connecting or syncing properly, it could be related to use of a proxy. A proxy server acts as an intermediary between your computer and another server from which you are requesting a service (eg. accessing a website). Currently, neither Craft nor InVision Sync formally support proxies.
This document provides an overview of possible issues with Craft or InVision Sync that could occur when using a proxy and walks you through how to troubleshoot and fix them. Please note that the symptoms described below aren’t only caused by proxies. At the same time using a proxy doesn’t automatically mean that you will experience these issues. There are many different types of proxies out there and not all of them will interfere with Craft and/or InVision Sync functionality similarly.
