You have to edit the web scrape php script and implement some changes. There is no "general" Xampp Setup for that::

It depends, how you connect to the scraped URL. If you use cURL, you will find some examples how to establish a connect via Proxy: ... ia-a-proxy

If you use native fsockopen() function, you will find an example for accessing via a proxy in the user contributed notes of the documentation:
