    Hi,

    BackWPup have worked fine before i recently upgraded it to the latest version (Version 3.1.2). Now, every time the job runs it gives me an error message:

    “ERROR: Dropbox API: (59) Unknown cipher in list: XXXX……..”

    And if I try to Reauthenticate (Sandbox) it says:

    “ERROR: Dropbox API: (59) Unknown cipher in list: XXXX……..”

    How do I fix this?

  • I second this, no errors in over a year and then suddenly I am getting issues too.

    Same error with BackWPup “ERROR: Dropbox API: (59) Unknown cipher in list:XXXXX”

    Same problem here with two websites (hosted with two different companies). I will wait until problem is fixed to update on my other dozen websites.

    Here is the log:

    1. Try to send backup file to Dropbox …
    [27-Feb-2014 20:21:07] ERROR: Dropbox API: (59) Unknown cipher in list: ECDHE- (etc)
    [27-Feb-2014 20:21:07] 2. Try to send backup file to Dropbox …

    27-Feb-2014 20:21:07] ERROR: Step aborted: too many attempts!

    Same problem here for quite some time.

    ERROR: Dropbox API: (59) Unknown cipher in list: [list of errors]

    Any idea to how to solve this problem?

    I am experiencing the same problem. Not able to send backup to dropbox.

    Dropbox API: (59) Unknown cipher in list:….

    Please, any idea how to solve this problem?

    We are getting the same error 🙁

    See the other thread: [resolved] 3.1.2 broke Dropbox for me.
    DANIEL HUSKEN has written a Mini Plugin to fix the issue.

    I’ve seen that. Is there a solution for those of us who are not coders?

    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
     * Author: Inpsyde GmbH
     * Author URI: http://inpsyde.com
     * Version: 0.1
     * Network: true
     * License: GPLv3
     * License URI: http://www.gnu.org/licenses/gpl-3.0
     */
    
    add_filter( 'backwpup_cacert_bundle', '__return_false' );

    To install the mini plugin:

    Copy the portion of code provided by Daniel in an empty text file, save it as backwpupsslfix.php and put it in /wp-content/plugins/ using an FTP client.

    Then refresh the installed plugins page in WordPress and activate the plugin.

    Hope this helps!

    wtankwey….

    thanks for the help

    the mini-plugin helps and backups do work. (however, this solution is far away from being “clean” and “pretty”.)

    @finehomes,

    You’re Welcome!

    I was able to use @wtankwey code to enable Dropbox authentication. During my backup test, Dropbox *immediately* didn’t like http instead of https. So I disabled his code, and ran the test backup again… but it failed after zipping all the files. Here is the log of the failure: http://pastebin.com/u3FpC2Y1

    Has anyone been able to get Dropbox backups to work since yesterday with the newest version of this plugin?

    Yes. I completed a backup after installing the mini-plugin although I did get these 2 warnings…

    “[03-Mar-2014 14:44:44] WARNING: Job restarts due to inactivity for more than 5 minutes.”

    “[03-Mar-2014 14:46:17] WARNING: Job finished with warnings in 527 seconds. Please resolve them for correct execution.”

    OK, it worked after my first test. Maybe it just needed to get warmed up? I use OpenShift and sometimes it can be slow. That may have been the issue.
