WordPress Backup to Dropbox
[resolved] Similar problem with all folders excluded (7 posts)

    Finding similar problem to the one I had with 0.9.4 where all folders were excluded from backup. V1.0 fixed this and now V1.1 has resulted in no files being backed up since the update :(

    Hmm I have not made any significant changes to the exclude widget in v1.1

    What files do you have excluded?
    Are any files making it Dropbox?

    Hello Micheal,

    It would appear thta after updating to V1.1 that not files have been backed up, so it looks like all files and folders are being excluded.

    The settings were not changed before or after the update. But I have added a number of NextGen photo galleries.

    The log indicates that WordPress Backup to Dropbox has run several times both automaticaly and manually but none of the new content is in the dropbox account.

    I have also looked at the time stamps in the drop box folder and the newest is 21 Jun which is the last auto update before the v1.1 update.

    Really do think you pliugin is great but when it is not working it makes me nervious. Many thanks for providing the basic version at no cost as we are a charity.

    As you can see it is taking a very long to time to back-up. My website is very very small.
    However the last back-up (7/17) only backed up the database, even though no files were checked in settings to be excluded.

    It backed up all files before June 21, before WP update.
    Please advise.

    It would appear that the Dropbox folder that WP2DB uses was changed and data is now stored in the apps folder. It would appear that the upgrade did not change the destination folder in Dropbox.

    Simple solution, uninstall WP2DB then re-install.
