[Plugin: BackWPup] Upload to Dropbox Stalls with no Error Message (37 posts)

    I tested the backup with other backup tools for wordpress and they all stop after upload starts... some at 10% other at 25% (but I guess this depends on the file size to upload).
    I sent an email to the hosting provider to see if there is a limit on upload size.
    Is it possible to upload in chunks of smaller files?

    Okay, here's a version of the error that I've been able to reproduce: The files actually upload to dropbox fine, but the progress bar hangs at 50%. This seems to happen only when my computer (Mac OS 10.7.5) is connected to the dropbox account. When I disconnect dropbox before running the backup job, it runs fine.

    Is the webserver and the Dropbox account on the same Maschine or in the same net ?

    Webserver is on shared hosting (BlueHost) and the Dropbox account is synced with the computer I am using to run backup job. (Firefox 18.0.2 Mac 10.7.5). When I disconnect from DropBox app on the Mac, the backup jobs seem to run just fine. Even when the progress bar stalls, however, the backup files are still uploaded to Dropbox. Weird, I know...
