WordPress Backup to Dropbox
[resolved] error message when backing up local install (4 posts)

    Hello Michael,
    I installed this plugin successfully, but received this error message when doing a backup;
    Error uploading 'C:\Users\Ann\Documents\Bitnami\apps\wordpress\htdocs\.buildcomplete' to Dropbox: Forbidden. Bad input parameter. Error message should indicate which one and why.

    How do I trouble shoot why the local install is not backup up?

    PS using your plugin successfully on another site/thank you!

    There are some known issues with windows that I hope to have fixed with an updated Dropbox API.

    Id say the file name is the issue.

    Cheers,
    Mikey

    Yup me too!

    I'm experiencing the same issue too on my windoze 2003 server box:

    12:27:45 : Error uploading 'C:\XXXXXX\XXXXXX\somedoc.html' to Dropbox: Forbidden. Bad input parameter. Error message should indicate which one and why.
    12:27:18 : Approximately 0% complete.

    And it looks like the backup fails every time.

    And just as you say, dropbox refeers to api changes. https://www.dropbox.com/developers/reference/oldapi

    Thanks.

    Daniel

    Unfortunately Windows and PHP dont play nicely together. I have implemented a new API lib that should fix this issue.

    You can download the release candidate here => https://github.com/downloads/michaeldewildt/WordPress-Backup-to-Dropbox/wordpress-backup-to-dropbox.zip
