[Resolved] 3.1.2 broke Dropbox for me

  • Hi there,

    Since installing 3.1.2 yesterday, I have now the following message in the log file:

    [28-fév-2014 04:21:21] ERREUR: DropBox API: (59) Unknown cipher in list: ECDHE-RSA-AES256-GCM-SHA384:ECDHE-RSA-AES128-GCM-SHA256:ECDHE-RSA-AES256-SHA384:ECDHE-RSA-AES128-SHA256:ECDHE-RSA-AES256-SHA:ECDHE-RSA-AES128-SHA:ECDHE-RSA-RC4-SHA:DHE-RSA-AES256-GCM-SHA384:DHE-RSA-AES128-GCM-SHA256:DHE-RSA-AES256-

    When I try to re-authenticate, the same message is displayed:

    DropBox API: (59) Unknown cipher in list: ECDHE-RSA-AES256-GCM-SHA384:ECDHE-RSA-AES128-GCM-SHA256:ECDHE-RSA-AES256-SHA384:ECDHE-RSA-AES128-SHA256:ECDHE-RSA-AES256-SHA:ECDHE-RSA-AES128-SHA:ECDHE-RSA-RC4-SHA:DHE-RSA-AES256-GCM-SHA384:DHE-RSA-AES128-GCM-SHA256:DHE-RSA-AES256-

    What can I do to restore dropbox functionality?

    Thank you very much and congrats for a well-made plug-in!

    Background info: it worked in 3.1.1. I have a daily backup job that saves the files and the database to the local filesystem and to dropbox. Server is running linux CentOS 6.5.

    You can try the follwoing mini Plugin to get it work again.

    <?php
    /**
     * Plugin Name: BackWPup disable SSL connection verifying
     * Plugin URI: https://marketpress.com/
     * Description: Disables the verifying from SSL connections in backup destinations

    add_filter( 'backwpup_cacert_bundle', 'backwpup_disable_ssl_verify' );
    function backwpup_disable_ssl_verify ( $file ) {
    
    	return FALSE;
    }

    Hi Daniel,

    Thank you very much – installing the mini plugin did the trick!

    I have a few remaining questions and hope you can shed some light on this:

    – are we still using SSL when connecting to Dropbox?

    – i understand from other posts that this won’t be included in the standard code, so I can just leave the fix enabled even for future versions?

    Thanks again,
    Julien

    Yes, SSL will used. But the Certificate will not checked.
    Yes, you can lave it enabled.

    Thanks a lot Daniel!

    A question to clarify, Before I update BackWPup across all the websites.

    All of the websites I made are using dropbox for backups – will updating plugin now break this and I will have to use the fix above to solve it?

    Not necessarily I guess. But if you encounter the same problem, here’s a fix.

    I don’t have a proper SSL certificate installed on my server so maybe this is causing the problem. But this is just a guess.

    Same issue here. My fix was to remove 3.1.2 and re-install 3.0.13. That version seems to work better than 3.1, 3.1.1 or 3.1.2 for me across the board.

    How do I reinstall 3.1.1? Where can I find it?

    on the developer tab of this support page are the older versions

    Hi, sbailey4,

    I downloaded 3.1.1 from the developer tab, but I can’t figure out how to run it. I can open the folder, but there’s no option for me to install the files.

    @danielhuesken

    Can You Pleas post the “[INFO] curl ver.:” from a logfile.
    I think it depends on the curl SSL Version that will be used.

    Hi Daniel,

    This comes from a logfile of mine:

    [INFO] curl ver.: 7.19.7; NSS/3.14.0.0

    Cheers,
    Julien

    What is the actual name of Mini plugin to install?
