    Doesn't work, no backups in my Dropbox folder, not via cron nor via manually starting it.

    Hi there,

    I had the same issue. I'm no specialist at all, but I've managed to solve the thing after two painful days of research.. try adding this to your wp-config.php:

    define( 'ALTERNATE_WP_CRON', true );

    Manual backup works for me now. I guess that the scheduled one will work as well, but I didn't test it yet.

    Good luck!

    Thanks for the reply mate, added that code to my wp-config.php file, still nothing. This plug-in is a dud methinks.

    And what about adding this:

    <Files "wp-cron.php">
    Allow from All
    Satisfy Any

    into your .htaccess? (I guess you already tried that one..)

    No I didn't have that, just put it in but no luck.

    I actually saw a "CRON-running" message in the address bar but nothing in my Dropbox, maybe getting closer to a solution.

    Thanks again.

    Yeah, it's really tricky.. In my case the issue was difficult to find out as even in debug mode:

    define('WP_DEBUG', true);

    in wp-config.php, the error wasn't showing up, no clues at all.

    Let me know if you manage to solve this problem.
