[Resolved] Dropbox: "The request to link the app is invalid."
New installation, unable to get Dropbox connected. I wiped settings to try again, and I get the same error. After wiping settings, I scroll down and select Dropbox as the remote storage. Hit Save Changes and then click the resulting link to authenticate.
(The link is: http://my.site.removed/wp/wp-admin/options-general.php?page=updraftplus&action=updraftmethod-dropbox-auth&updraftplus_dropboxauth=doit, which then calls https://www.dropbox.com/1/oauth/authorize?oauth_callback=http%3A%2F%2Fmy.site.removed%2Fwp%2Fwp-admin%2Foptions-general.php%3Fpage%3Dupdraftplus%26action%3Dupdraftmethod-dropbox-auth)
Clicking this link takes me to my Dropbox account and a red error appears at the top of the page stating “The request to link the app is invalid.”
Reloading the UpdraftPlus settings page results in the message: “(You appear to be already authenticated).” But there is no app registered on Dropbox, and backups don’t work.
After trying a manual backup, each page load tries to get the files backed up, to no avail:
