    I'm a little curious as to what it is doing to my backup does not happen? I push the start back then happens, nothing happens ... it shows nothing on the dropbox either?

    Your server settings (.htaccess file) might be blocking wp-cron which is required to start the backup process. You will need to add the following to a .htaccess file in your WordPress root directory:

    <Files "wp-cron.php">
    Allow from All
    Satisfy Any
    </Files>

    For information please refer to this thread - http://wordpress.org/support/topic/plugin-wordpress-backup-to-dropbox-nothing-seems-to-happen-when-backing-up

    Are you using a cache plugin?

    I am using W3TC and WordPress Backup to Dropbox 1.4. The backup does not start. Nothing in wpb2d folder.

    @Michael I've added the code that you provided above in .htaccess and tried to backup once again still there is nothing in wpb2d folder :(

    I am too using W3TC and WordPress Backup to Dropbox 1.4. Even last version was not working on my site, I was waiting for updates from long time but sadly this version is also not working, please help. This plugin is great option to automate the backup process. I really appreciate your work, thanks in advance.

    From what I am hearing W3TC and WPB2D don't play nicely together and investigating why is now at the top of my TODO list.

    I will let you know when I find a solution.

    Hello Michael,

    I'm using latest version, I've added the .htaccess code, deactivate the W3 Total cache, still it shows following when I click start backup:

    Backup Log

    You have not run a backup yet. When you do you will see a log of it here.

    Please verify that wp-cron is working by scheduling a post some time in the future and checking it posts.

    wp-cron is not working. I did miss a post. I've got it set to true in wp-cron and nothing about wp-cron in my wp-config.

    I do have this in my .htaccess file:
    <Files "wp-cron.php">
    Allow from All
    Satisfy Any
    </Files>
