Support » Plugin: WordPress Backup to Dropbox » Upload error "too many requests"

  • Resolved bstritesky


    Any idea why I would be seeing this? It was just an incremental backup after the initial backup had completed.

    00:25:21 : A fatal error occured: The backup is having trouble uploading files to Dropbox, it has failed 10 times and is aborting the backup.
    00:25:21 : Approximately 7% complete.
    00:25:21 : Error uploading ‘’ to Dropbox: Forbidden. Your app is making too many requests and is being rate limited. 503s can trigger on a per-app or per-user basis.

    Id say this is a one off issue. Dropbox could have been under some heavy load at the time of your backup and they rate limited the app.

    Have you seen the error again?
