    Hello,

    I just installed your plug in on a site to check it out, on a Windows server and after I activated the plug in I get this message on the configuration screen.

    There was a fatal error loading WordPress Backup to Dropbox
    Need OpenSSL support for https:// requests

    Any suggestions?

    Thank you,
    Kevin

    Gday Kevin,

    Dropbox requires that all requests use SSL (HTTPS). So you server needs you have OpenSSL installed for it to work. Linux servers usually have this by default.

    I do not use Windows at all so I am not sure how to install it.

    Cheers,
    Mikey

    Thanks Mike. I saw in another post that someone said they were running it on a Windows server so I thought it should be possible. I'll follow up with the hosting company.
