Backup
[resolved] Authorization failed (2 posts)

    I followed instructions of what to do to authorise the plugin by using this guide http://www.wpsquare.com/backup-wordpress-blog-google-drive/ and when I put in the ID and secret and get the "request for permission" screen and click "allow access". But when it returns to the plugin, it says

    Authorization failed!

    Failed to connect to 173.194.78.84: Permission denied

    Any idea how to fix this?
    Thanks

    Got is sorted myself! The host had this system where you needed to specifically allow IP addresses which can be connected to (for security), I switched this off.
    The weird this is that this security feature only seemed to control https connections, since the twitter widget on my site previously only worked when set to use http rather than https (and the connection to google drive is obviously https).
