Support » Plugin: BackWPup - WordPress Backup Plugin » Error code: Dropbox API

  • Candis



    I have installed the BackWPup plugin and keep getting this error message:

    Dropbox API: (55) SSL_write() returned SYSCALL, errno = 32

    Anyone know what it means and how to fix it? I’ve copied and pasted the API key several times directly from dropbox to the plugin (another user thought maybe I had input the API key incorrectly)

  • Hi Candis,
    I am getting the same code for the last 2 days of attempted backup. I just tried to do a manual backup and same thing.
    If you get an answer, I would love to hear what it is!

    I had the same thing this morning, too.

    I got the same error message, then updated to WordPress 4.7 and ran the job manually and it worked. I’m curious if running it manually worked or if it was the update. (I’ll know tomorrow morning when it runs again!) Is everyone here up to 4.7?

    I am already on 4.7 and am getting the same error code. Would also love a fix for this.

    If you run it manually, do you get the error? Just curious to see if mine will be solved because it actually ran when I did it manually. 😀

    Hey everyone, after trying to figure it out for hours I ended up installing another plugin that worked easily with Dropbox. I’m not tech savvy enough to figure out glitches like that one!

    Do you mind me asking which plug in you switched to?

    Yes I am also having similar problems for a few days now.

    Glad I’m not the only one.

    I think it was Updraft Plus.

    Hi guys, yes Kimmarla is right. I went with Updraft. It seemed less complicated and had generally better reviews.

    Hi Everyone,

    Mine works now, after so many days. 🙂

    Not sure if you guys use a caching plugin to speed up your website but all I did was delete/clear the cache and it worked both manually and by scheduling the backup to Dropbox. No errors.

    Hopefully the same works for you all.
