All of the extensions hosted here will need to be treated as a new install as there is no migration from the original ones to these, and furthermore, no support will be given to migrating to any of these extensions from previous versions.

I noticed the difference in token.
Dropbox generates a Access token 143 symbols. But in the settings, in the token field, only 100 symbols are placed in the token field.
Changes in the dropbox?

It is not a major issue - it is just a limit in the template file

Open ext\devspace\dropboxupload\adm\style\dropboxupload_manage.html

Find

Code: Select all

<input class="textbox" name="dropbox_token" type="text" id="dropbox_token" value="{{ DROPBOX_TOKEN }}" size="50" maxlength="100">
Replace with

Code: Select all

<input class="textbox" name="dropbox_token" type="text" id="dropbox_token" value="{{ DROPBOX_TOKEN }}" size="100" maxlength="255">

Hei!
I got a backup in a day from Auto database backup!
But now, I do not understand how the dropbox works.
When does it work? When creating a database?
And if there are several? What value should be set? 1,2.3?
What is this? What are the values of the values here?
And in the log of errors I have:
Anonymous 178.xxx.xx.4x
» {"error_summary": "expired_access_token/", "error": {".tag": "expired_access_token"}}
But the keys and token are true, I created them under this application.

upload is not working for me.

phpBB error log shows:

Code: Select all

Dropbox returned the error
» {"error_summary": "invalid_access_token/...", "error": {".tag": "invalid_access_token"}}
But I entered it correctly

I may have found the issue.

I enter the token
Example:

Code: Select all

sl.Bp1kXyOfUZcI-YKaQTY3pJRYXPlkZwXuIbFjeHwLN_9xSq6WbC3KnwBdlw7AABICvhMtvXjCaBGES7CSUVOU-PwKJuAiR_5-UwB8TTjcguy8AsYd3h6eGlgZynhfyJZWoAmf3wTNt9vE
save the settings.
When I open the plugin settings again later and check the token, it has not been shortened to:

Code: Select all

sl.Bp1kXyOfUZcI-YKaQTY3pJRYXPlkZwXuIbFjeHwLN_9xSq6WbC3KnwBdlw7AABICvhMtvXjCaBGES7CSUVOU-PwKJuAiR_5-U
This happened twice.

EDIT: Sorry, I just noticed work-around posted above. Forum does not allow me to delete my posts.
I changed the template file as described, but the token is still getting shortened.

I tried a new token and then checked the database, and sure enough... token is truncated to 100 chars.

I tried changing 'size' in template to 143 as well. But it doesn't matter what I put in the template. It's always truncated.

That looks to me as if you have not changed the maxlength to 255 on that template field.

Did you purge the cache after making the change?

Nope. I didn't even know that was a thing. Let me see if I can find where to do that ....

EDIT: ok I purged the cache (from the ACP>General tab), and now the token appears to be sticking. Next backup in an hour. Now I wait ...

That error is nothing to do with the extension it is an error from Dropbox which, I believe, is to do with the access token not being correct for what you are doing.

The next scheduled upload failed .
The log says

Code: Select all

Dropbox returned the error
» {"error_summary": "expired_access_token/..", "error": {".tag": "expired_access_token"}}
I see no place to adjust expiry time of a token.
Do I have to generate a new one each time I want to backup?

so apparently these tokens are "short-lived" (about 4 hrs) hence why they are pre-fixed with "sl."
According to Dropbox documentation, apps are supposed to request permanent or "offline" tokens using the API.
Does this plugin do that?

Did you follow the instructions at the bottom of the settings page?

The instructions don't exactly match what I see on Dropbox, but yes I followed them as closely as possible.
