    When I try to reauthenticate Dropbox I get an API (59) error. Any ideas what might be going on?

    BackWPup version 3.1.2-beta3 (same problem on 3.1.1)

    Hello Mossalot,

    Interesting, because i have copied the cipher list from the Dropbox PHP SDK. In 3.1.1 the list was not integrated.

    The Cipher list is:

    curl_setopt( $ch, CURLOPT_SSL_CIPHER_LIST,
    						 'ECDHE-RSA-AES256-GCM-SHA384:'.
    						 'ECDHE-RSA-AES128-GCM-SHA256:'.
    						 'ECDHE-RSA-AES256-SHA384:'.
    						 'ECDHE-RSA-AES128-SHA256:'.
    						 'ECDHE-RSA-AES256-SHA:'.
    						 'ECDHE-RSA-AES128-SHA:'.
    						 'ECDHE-RSA-RC4-SHA:'.
    						 'DHE-RSA-AES256-GCM-SHA384:'.
    						 'DHE-RSA-AES128-GCM-SHA256:'.
    						 'DHE-RSA-AES256-SHA256:'.
    						 'DHE-RSA-AES128-SHA256:'.
    						 'DHE-RSA-AES256-SHA:'.
    						 'DHE-RSA-AES128-SHA:'.
    						 'AES256-GCM-SHA384:'.
    						 'AES128-GCM-SHA256:'.
    						 'AES256-SHA256:'.
    						 'AES128-SHA256:'.
    						 'AES256-SHA:'.
    						 'AES128-SHA'
    			);

    You must find out with is not supported on your server and install it. Or deactivate the security with 3.1.2 and the mini plugin from http://wordpress.org/support/topic/dropbox-api-35-unsupported-ssl-protocol-version?replies=34.

    I also have the same error. I have the better wp plugin installed, is there some sort of interaction error with this plugin?

    I also have the same error on three of my sites now:
    ERROR: Dropbox API: (59) Unknown cipher in list: ECDHE-RSA-AES256-GCM-SHA384:ECDHE-RSA-AES128-GCM-SHA256:ECDHE-RSA-AES256-SHA384:ECDHE-RSA-AES128-SHA256:ECDHE-RSA-AES256-SHA:ECDHE-RSA-AES128-SHA:ECDHE-RSA-RC4-SHA:DHE-RSA-AES256-GCM-SHA384:DHE-RSA-AES128-GCM-SHA256:DHE-RSA-AES256-
    [03-Mar-2014 04:46:27] ERROR: Step aborted: too many attempts!

    This was working until the last update of backwpup. it appears this problem is not resolved and I can no longer back up these sites.

    You can Download a mini Plugin from http://marketpress.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/03/backwpup-disable-ssl-verify.zip with this activateed it will work again. It has to do with the cURL SSL Version. I will made a update in next time so that it works again without that Plugin.

    Daniel, you might want to take a look at this commit in the Dropbox PHP library: https://github.com/dropbox/dropbox-sdk-php/commit/05ad82740afd576073bfdb34136ef63d4174167e and make a similar change in your code (if it's not already there).

    (Feel free to ping me if you need any help: smarx@dropbox.com.)

    It is possible to see this error with the "Reauthenticate" button on the dropbox tab and also demonstrate the fix works too

    It's been two weeks since you posted the hack solution. How many people are trusting BackWPUp to backup their WP and have no idea it's broken?

    When will the new fixed plugin be made available?

    When we think the beta from https://github.com/inpsyde/backwpup is tested well.

    I am facing the same problem. Does using mini plugin affect security on e-commorce website? since I understand from above that there is something related to SSL certificate?

    No, that affects only BackWPup.

    Same problem. Installed the mini plugin. Now I get to the DB website and can Allow Acces. But WP admin keeps saying: "Not authenticated!".

    @J Rambo: That is not the same. You can test the Version from https://github.com/inpsyde/backwpup there is a new auth system for Dropbox implemented.

    Will test that version soon.

    Thanks! The mini-plugin works!

    Once I've authenticated DropBox, should I deactive and delete the mini-plugin?

    Do you have a timeline for a fix to the main plug-in?

    Hi, I'm getting the same message and can't authenticate Dropbox. When you do think the new version backwpup will be released? Thank you Daniel and let us know when is out!

    Mini Plugin did the fix-it trick. Thanks Daniel.

    Same issue and confirming that miniplugin did the trick regarding the error, but I got another issue afterwards - after starting the job all I get is 'Job "Database (weekly backup)" started.' and nothing happens.

    Any advice?
