[resolved] [plugin: BackWPup] Not able to backup to dropbox (39 posts)

    Hi all,
    This Plugin works great for small backups that can be emailed or plain old insecure FTP. However, I am encountering numerous issues getting it working in a secure fashion with SFTP and laterly DropBox.

    It may help narrow down outstanding issues if people stated what OS their WordPress is hosted on. My site is hosted on Windows. This issue did not arise when I tested the same version of this plugin on a Unix hosted site.

    I am using version 1.7.1 of BackWPup- the latest version and experiencing the same issues with others eg:

    [ERROR] DropBox API: Invalid signature. Expected signature base string: POST&https%3A%2F%2Fapi-content.dropbox.com%2F0%2Ffiles%2Fdropbox%2FBTOSCwordpress&file%3Dbackwpup_0_2011-03-29_19-08-52.zip%26oauth_consumer_key%XXXXauth_nonce%XXXXoauth_signature_method%3DHMAC-SHA1%26oauth_timestamp%3D1301422135%26oauth_token%3Devxxxx%26oauth_version%3D1.0

    Can anyone suggest what changes I could make to the code that would help debug this?

    Thanks all,

    Just testing a new version and got no red message about the DropBox. Thank you so much for your patience, sir, now your backup plugin become a very best one again!

    I'm using the latest version of Backwpup

    and i'm receiving the dropbox error
    DropBox API: (55) select/poll returned error

    The strange thing is this is only happening with the file backup

    the database backup seems to be working without an issues as the db zip is being sent to dropbox fine

    the file backup is totaling about 500mb FYI (not sure if the size makes a diff at all)

    dropbox only support a max. of 300 mb file transfer.

    Still not working for me with 1.7.3:

    [ERROR] DropBox API: Invalid signature. Expected signature base string: POST&https%3A% etc

    Might it be because I'm running several WP installations on one virtual server? Just a guess really.

    I have the same issue now. Today. Latest version of WordPress and this plugin:

    Wrong Token for Dropbox authentication received!

    I've deleted all useless plugins. The remaining plugins I need.

    Hi Daniel. Thanks for responding, but I've moved on from the Dropbox solution. The limitation of 150 or 200MB is useless.

    My S3 has a problem too. Could you please advise.
