[resolved] Latest Changes to Dropbox broke BackWPup (10 posts)

    When trying to move the backup to my dropbox account, it generates this error:

    [ERROR] DropBox API: (411) Chunked encoding was attempted for this upload, but is not supported by Dropbox.
    2011/11/27 04:04.08: [ERROR] Step arborted has too many trys!

    I am using it on two sites and both have the same problem. It started right after Dropbox made API changes. When will it be fixed?

    Since the 150 MB is VERY arbitrary can this be changed? How?

    Thanks Daniel,
    I was not aware that this is caused by the Dropbox API because I though that I sent larger files than 150 MB into the dropbox folder but I may wrong on that.

    Is there a chance to
    - compress the files first
    - split them using something like 'split --line-bytes=100m foo.tar.gz foo_'
    - send them to dropbox

    thanks for reacting
    Peter

    Hey Daniel - actually Dropbox's API does not limit uploads if you use /chunked_upload instead of files_put
    see this: https://www.dropbox.com/developers/reference/api#chunked-upload

    any chance of you updating the plugin accordingly?!
