There's a related old issue #12840 about this but I open a new one because it's about QGIS2.ini not being read by QGIS Server, while I would ask it in more general terms: looking inside the QGIS Server code it seems that it doesn't take into account any proxy setting. Is it right? It's not a bug certainly but an important missing feature for sure.
Can anybody confirm this?

Using release 3.4.2, I made some progress, though not 100% yet.

Configuring "FcgidInitialEnv QGIS_OPTIONS_PATH /qgis/options/path/" and providing /qgis/options/path/QGIS/QGIS3.ini file with a section like e.g.:


will enable the proxy.

However, I'm still not successful with the following setup:

FcgidInitialEnv QGIS_OPTIONS_PATH /qgis/options/path/
FcgidInitialEnv http_proxy http://myproxy:80/

With log level QGIS_DEBUG set to 5, the debug log reports:
src/core/qgsnetworkaccessmanager.cpp: 339: (setupDefaultProxyAndCache) [8ms] setting default proxy
src/core/qgsnetworkaccessmanager.cpp: 163: (setFallbackProxyAndExcludes) [0ms] proxy settings: (type:HttpProxy host: myproxy:80, user:, password:not set
src/core/qgsnetworkaccessmanager.cpp: 390: (setupDefaultProxyAndCache) [1ms] cacheDirectory: /var/www/.local/share/QGIS/QGIS3/profiles/default/cache/

src/core/qgsnetworkaccessmanager.cpp: 91: (queryProxy) [0ms] using system proxy :0 for query

So QNetworkProxyFactory::systemProxyForQuery() finds the proxy defined via the http_proxy env variable (mind the lowercase!), but QNetworkProxyFactory::systemProxyForQuery( query ) apparently does not(?)
