Support » Plugin: XCloner - Backup and Restore » Trying to use Dropbox or google drive

  • Resolved smokinjo


    I am trying to set up/ test the software.

    But, when I look at adding dropbox or google drive. I followed the instructions in the video to make an user name and secret code. But, the ones generated failed.

    I did nto see how to make this work for Dropbox, so I did nto know where to start.

    Any ohter documentation or ideas to help set this up?

    For dropbox, you need to go into their app developers section and create an access token and secret to use with the XCloner Remote Storage Section->Dropbox area

    Please check the XCloner logger from it’s Dashboard to see the exact error reported, feel free to share it here if you have further problems.

    I dropped the googledrive. I did try dropbox though.

    It worked and xcloner connects to dropbox.

    I worked through the back up procedure. I can make a back up and it resides on the server.

    But, the transfer to dropbox seems ot fail. Log says:
    [2019-04-09 18:33:27] xcloner_remote_storage.INFO: Transferring backup to remote storage DROPBOX [“”] []
    [2019-04-09 18:33:26] xcloner_remote_storage.INFO: Doing DROPBOX remote storage cleanup for 60 days limit [] []
    [2019-04-09 18:33:26] xcloner_remote_storage.INFO: Creating the DROPBOX remote storage connection [“”] []

    But, on the transfer page, I get a “internal server error”.

    Where might I look to see what my server can not connect to Dropbox?

    You are probably running into a server timeout when transferring the backup, i would suggest to setup a scheduled backup process to send the archive to dropbox based on a real server scheduler
