    Hello,

    I've just freshly installed this Plugin, and when I click WPB2DP in the left column, I get the below:

    *************************
    Error

    There was a fatal error loading WordPress Backup to Dropbox, please reload the page and try again.

    If the problem persists please re-install WordPress Backup to Dropbox.

    Error message: WordPress does not have write access to '/home/testsite/public_html/wp-content/backups'. Please grant it write privileges before using this plugin.
    *************************

    Do you know what the file permissions are? I had to manually create the "backups" folder. Currently it sits at 755.

    Thank you.

    That depends on what user apache runs as. You can try 766 which will open write access to other users of your group.

    Cheers,
