[Resolved] Error: The PHP curl functions not available!

    That would probably be due to a server configuration. Dropbox requires a secure connection so the plugin is configured to use CURL with SSL. I would give PEAR a shot by changing the setting in the plugin admin.

    Thanks for your quick response.

    I set the FTP to SSL.
    Then I changed setting to “PEAR oAuth” in the plugin admin.

    After upload I get this message:

    “Fatal error: Call to a member function setToken() on a non-object in D:\Inetpub\webs\mydomainname\upload\wp-content\plugins\simple-dropbox-upload-form\wp-dropbox.php on line 272”

    All the files I uploaded (even if I get the error message) are in the “wp-content/uploads/wpdb” folder. But not in Dropbox.

    I notice you are using a windows host… I am not sure if this plugin will work since I don’t have access to a windows server for testing. I would bet $ that is the root of the problem.

    Yes I’m using a windows host. What’s the best hosting environment you suggest for your plugin to work properly?
    Right now I can’t change it… Is there anything else I can do in order to use the plugin on my windows host?

    If you are on a windows platform you might want to google around and find out how to enable the CURL SSL extension for PHP instead of the regular curl and then give that a shot. I linux for all my hosting services and for robustness and security I always suggest it for any type of hosting.

    Thanks a lot for your help! I’ll check around to find out a solution to enable CURL SSL
