    Hi,

    I am having an issue with updraftplus backing up to Google Drive. I went through the very excellent tutorial listed here:

    UpdraftPlus Install Tutorial

    And it looks like it works (mind you I had this working back in 2014):

    Success: you have authenticated your Google Drive account. Name: Mitchell Tuckness. Your Google Drive quota usage: 69.1 % used, 9506.7 Mb available

    But below that I have this error message:

    Have not yet obtained an access token from Google – you need to authorise or re-authorise your connection to Google Drive.

    I just created the project again in the Google Developers API, but I have no idea how to resolve this authentication issue.

  • In the Log around 400 I see this:

    Beginning dispatch of backup to remote (googledrive)
    0310.510 (1) Google Drive: requesting access token: client_id=(Removed)
    0310.710 (1) Google Drive error when requesting access token: response does not contain access_token. Response: { “error” : “invalid_client”}
    0310.712 (1) ERROR: Have not yet obtained an access token from Google (has the user authorised?)
    0310.713 (1) An error condition has occurred for the first time during this job

    I just told it to do a backup for kicks and it succeeded, even with the error and now it is not showing. Maybe the error was listed from the last backup?

    I searched the lag file and it looks good:

    0425.754 (1) There were no errors in the uploads, so the ‘resume’ event (2) is being unscheduled

    I guess it was a display fluke.
