[resolved] ERROR: Dropbox API: (59) Unknown cipher in list (31 posts)

    Hi,

    BackWPup have worked fine before i recently upgraded it to the latest version (Version 3.1.2). Now, every time the job runs it gives me an error message:

    "ERROR: Dropbox API: (59) Unknown cipher in list: XXXX........"

    And if I try to Reauthenticate (Sandbox) it says:

    "ERROR: Dropbox API: (59) Unknown cipher in list: XXXX........"

    How do I fix this?

    Same problem here with two websites (hosted with two different companies). I will wait until problem is fixed to update on my other dozen websites.

    Here is the log:

    1. Try to send backup file to Dropbox …

    See the other thread: [resolved] 3.1.2 broke Dropbox for me.
    DANIEL HUSKEN has written a Mini Plugin to fix the issue.

    I've seen that. Is there a solution for those of us who are not coders?

    You can try the follwoing mini Plugin to get it work again.

    <?php
    /**
     * Plugin Name: BackWPup disable SSL connection verifying
     * Plugin URI: https://marketpress.com/
     * Description: Disables the verifying from SSL connections in backup destinations
     * Author: Inpsyde GmbH
     * Author URI: http://inpsyde.com
     * Version: 0.1
     * Network: true
     * License: GPLv3
     * License URI: http://www.gnu.org/licenses/gpl-3.0
     */
    
    add_filter( 'backwpup_cacert_bundle', '__return_false' );

    To install the mini plugin:

    Copy the portion of code provided by Daniel in an empty text file, save it as backwpupsslfix.php and put it in /wp-content/plugins/ using an FTP client.

    Then refresh the installed plugins page in WordPress and activate the plugin.

    Hope this helps!

    the mini-plugin helps and backups do work. (however, this solution is far away from being "clean" and "pretty".)

    I was able to use @wtankwey code to enable Dropbox authentication. During my backup test, Dropbox *immediately* didn't like http instead of https. So I disabled his code, and ran the test backup again... but it failed after zipping all the files. Here is the log of the failure: http://pastebin.com/u3FpC2Y1

    Has anyone been able to get Dropbox backups to work since yesterday with the newest version of this plugin?

    Yes. I completed a backup after installing the mini-plugin although I did get these 2 warnings...

    "[03-Mar-2014 14:44:44] WARNING: Job restarts due to inactivity for more than 5 minutes."

    "[03-Mar-2014 14:46:17] WARNING: Job finished with warnings in 527 seconds. Please resolve them for correct execution."

    OK, it worked after my first test. Maybe it just needed to get warmed up? I use OpenShift and sometimes it can be slow. That may have been the issue.

    Good deal. I'm still getting the warnings although the backup is being completed.

    Confirming that the issue still exists for me, but the plugin fix worked perfectly. I hope the author takes notice and resolves the issue soon, as it appears it has been a long-standing problem...
