    Could you please take few screenshots of your setting and what error did you get and then give it to me?

    I have no idea how to attach images in this forum, but you may find my settings (and the error message) in this linked png:

    Note the wrong URL in the curl message that does not fit for Google services.

    The error message in the log shows the same:
    [13-Apr-2018 22:09:42] 1. Trying to send backup file to S3 Service …
    [13-Apr-2018 22:09:49] ERROR: S3 Service API: [curl] 6: Could not resolve host: [url]
    [13-Apr-2018 22:09:50] 2. Trying to send backup file to S3 Service …

    [13-Apr-2018 22:10:05] ERROR: Step aborted: too many attempts!

    Everything worked fine before the last update to 3.4.5.

    This may be a bug, I going to forward your report to our developers and get back to you ASAP πŸ˜€
    Thank you for reporting!

    Any updates on this topic. It’s one week since your developers should have a look at the topic and my backups to Google Storage are still not working.

    In other threads (see for example, @duongcuong96 mentioned that the option to use other S3 services besides Amazon was removed and is not supported anymore:

    For now, we currently only support backup to AWS S3 so that why we removed the custom S3 service.

    If true, thats a real pity and a reason to switch to another backup solution.

    Even worse is the half-assed confirmation of a bug in this thread by @duongcuong96 and the deafening silence since then.

    It’s been almost a month now. Anything to report? Is it a bug or a “feature”?

    Hi @all,

    we have a new version on github fixing bugs of 3.5.0. You can download it here
    Would be great if we get some feedback before we release on

    Thanks a lot for your help!

    Is this problem fixed or not? It’s still not acknowledged in the changelog, and I’m not inclined to update beyond 3.4.4 until it is confirmed to be fixed.

    Version 3.5.1

    Release Date: May 23, 2018

    Fixed: call to a member function close() on null
    Fixed: Cannot use object of type WP_Error as array
    Fixed: Can’t use function return value in write context
    Fixed: Compatibility with PHP 5.3
    Fixed: Decreased size of plugin by purging unneeded files

    Version 3.5.0

    Release Date: May 16, 2018

    Added: Restore for pro version
    Fixed: stylesheet was being included on frontend

    Version 3.4.5

    Added: Support for PclZip.
    Fixed: Disable use of mysqldump if it is not available.
    Fixed: Invalid argument supplied for foreach() error.

    I’m seeing the exact same thing. Would be very disappointing to see Google Cloud support being removed – I have around a dozen sites in production that depend on this feature.

    It doesn’t seem like v3.5.1 fixes the issue. Can you please let us know whether or not Google Cloud support has been removed or if this is a bug on your end?

    #here πŸ™‚
    the new 3.6.0 version is released with custom S3 URI enabled!
    Please update as soon as possible.
    Sorry to let you guys wait so long…

    And if you find BackWPUp is useful for you, we would really appreciate if you leave a positive review and rating.
    This would encourage us to develop new free features and provide free support πŸ˜€

    Ok, thanks @duongcuong96!

    Thanks. I upgraded from 3.4.4 to 3.6.0 and Google Storage seems to still be enabled.
