WordPress Backup to Dropbox
[resolved] Uploading to Dropbox Issue (3 posts)

    I've just installed this plugin and all appears to be working other than the important part of uploading the zipped (I have paid for the extension) backup file to Dropbox.

    Can confirm that 'WordPress Backup to Dropbox' is showing in 'My apps' for my Dropbox account.

    The plugin has been deleted and reinstalled.

    Looking at the 'Backup Log' I can see the upload process starting but that's were it stops (I have left it running overnight) and the zip file is 34MB in size.

    Looking for advice, thanks in advance.

    Does the plugin work fine without zip installed?

    What is your PHP memory limit? Using zip requires at least 150MB.

    I have the plugin plus the Zip extension. The zip file is correctly created in wp-content/backups, but the upload to Dropbox does not happen. then the backup seems to cycle endlessly. Log:
