    Hi Ken,

    That indicates that something else in your PHP setup is turning that setting on. You should ask your web hosting company how to turn it off. It is that setting which is causing the problem.

    I found it working using FTP, but not other cloud drive services.

    You will need to turn that setting off to use most services. Basically, it is a setting that changes how PHP counts the length of pieces of data. It’s a terrible idea. Because it’s a terrible idea, PHP have deprecated it and it will stop existing entirely in a future PHP release.

    My web hosting replied that they have not enabled the option by default, but still pops up that warning even the code does not exist.
    But now I want my website backed up to Google drive but still can’t back up due to error and the problem exists on multiple sites even on newly installed websites.

    Hi,

    If the setting is not on by default, but is on on your site, then that means that *somewhere* in your WP install, configuration, functions.php, themes, plugins, mu-plugins, etc., there is some code that turns it on.

    I’ve got a conclusion:
    The web hosting company I am using is not compatible with your plugin
    Dataplugs (https://dataplugs.com) – should be added to the blacklist

    I tested this plugin using a test website on that hosting service, fresh install, default theme, no extra plugins, and it turns out to be the warnings I mentioned in previous posts in this thread.

    Problem finally solved
    the PHP option mbstring is the culprit – in the cPanel
    I disabled it, connect to dropbox, done

    Sort out
