Support » Plugin: UpdraftPlus WordPress Backup Plugin » google drive problem

  • Resolved joeedens


    After setting up google drive, which appeared to all work properly because it said that I’m authenicated, the first backup that I attempted gave the following error message:

    * Error: The ‘resumable_create_media_link’ was not found in feed.
    * Failed to upload to Google Drive

    Any suggestions?

    Never seen that one before. All I can suggest initially is to redo the instructions from the start and see if you get a different result!


    I may have found the problem. One thing that I had trouble with when configuring google drive in the updraftplus plugin was in trying to locate the Google Drive Folder ID. I was never able to get a URL that looked like your example for finding the ID. Here is the URL that I have when I’m on the google drive page:
    I ended up trying to share a document then used the number from that URL. I think that was mistake. I went back to the folder ID field and left it blank and resubmitted for authentication and tried again. This time something is showing up in my google drive. I’ll let you know if I have more problems. If this works, I’m going to buy your premium package.

    Hi Joe,

    If you’re in the Google Drive root, then leaving it blank is the correct thing to do. It only shows the format like in the example if you’re in a sub-folder. Anyway, it seems that you got it sorted!
