    Recently upgraded to the latest version of BackWPup and the backup to DropBox functionality stopped working. Has anyone experienced this problem?

    I just used the Dropbox functionality today but did run into a bug which might be your problem, too. Since my dropbox password had characters in it other than letters and numbers, the plugin stripped out these characters and I got a "login error".

    When I changed my dropbox password to use only letters and numbers, it worked.

    This needs to be fixed because it may also strip out password characters for the other backup services.

    sorry i have changed the password saving in the database so its not save in clear text. That is why the password must set again.

    I have problems with DropBox. [ERROR] DropBox: Cannot execute request: select/poll returned error

    I tried the public folder and one that I created and shared with my same user-email that owns the drop box account. My dropbox is using 3% of 2GB

    I'm getting the same error as @rlidzy.
    [ERROR] Can not Auth with DropBox API: Only the app owner can receive access token while this app is in development mode

    Probably something left in development mode by the plugin author. Should be a quick fix.

    I have just discovered BackWPup a fortnight ago and it's everything I have longed for! GREAT plug-in, Daniel! Thanks a lot so far.
    It has been running smoothly ever since - until today when I installed it on another wp-installation with exactly the same default configuration (saving to my dropbox). Suddenly, I get the same error message as above on both WP-installations. (Both running WP3.1 and latest atahualpa theme).
    Oddly enough, the first installation ran a succesful daily scheduled backup at 10.42.17 GMT+1. (≈ 4 hours ago).
    The failed schedules were all forced from the panel by clicking the "Run now" button. Both are on the same IP-no, but different domains.
    Hope this will help clarify.

    I'm not even using the Dropbox backup option but I'm getting this error in my log files now, with BackWPup 1.60 and WordPress 3.1:

    [ERROR] Can not Auth with DropBox API: Only the app owner can receive access token while this app is in development mode

    Why is it trying to access DropBox when I have not selected that option in the backup job. All dropbox fields are empty.

    Unless this problem gets sorted out, can you please release a fix which will revert users to older Dropbox method keeping other enhancements of 1.6.0 entact?

    I have reverted back to 1.5.5 and its working fine now though took a bit of work coz I deactivated 1.6.0 first which deleted all options from the db so I had to get them back as well. Phew.

    @geoffwhite

    Just add to your wp-config.php the DEFINE line in the instructions of the plugin - remove the DROPBOX word ;)

    Thanks for the awesome plugin Daniel!

    I use it at Perishable Press and am stuck with the same error:

    [ERROR] Can not Auth with DropBox API: Only the app owner can receive access token while this app is in development mode

    Everything else works great, but looking forward to your next update.

    Thanks again, for helping the WordPress community with this excellent plugin.

    thanks Daniel, we all wait for the dropbox, as I tried also S3 or Azure, but they seem to require some details I don't understand.
    Dropbox was working that's why it is so frustrating

    ObviousIdea: yes, but i have change from dropboxuploader to a reale dropbox api class. With the new class i can make download links and show files on dropbox or delete old backups.

    I say it again i wating for Dropbox that say give my plugin the ok.
    I hope that are in the next houers, but if the find thomthing to change agin than it will take longer. Sorrry.
