Hi everyone,

I have been trying to create an automatic backup job for my site, following these tutorials: tutorial 1; tutorial 2.

But right now, I'm having some trouble with BackupWPup and Dropbox because, in the To:Dropbox tab of the BackWPup Job I'm trying to create, it constantly shows Authentication - Not authenticated!

At the moment I'm logged into my Dropbox account, so I don't understand what I'm doing wrong and why it is showing that message?

I attached a screenshot so you can see what I'm talking about.

By the way, besides the default plugins I only have installed the BackWPup plugin and the Courage Pro plugin, which is an extension of the theme I'm using.

Could you give me some tips on how to make this work properly?

Are either of the "Get auth code" buttons active? I'm thinking that you may just need to get the code to activate your access.

welshy added this comment to his training tutorial. It's pretty far down in the comments so you might have missed it:

"I just tested the plugin on a test site, when you get to the “To:DropBox” tab/options.
If you already have an account, do not click create account, simply select either “Get Dropbox App auth code” or “Get full Dropbox auth code”.
Copy the auth code you get after granting access and paste into the field. Then scroll down and hit Save. It should then say Success Authenticated!"

Thank you very much Bob!
I was confused and thought the fields were used to specify folder destinations... only now did I understand I had to paste the code I got there! That interface sure is confusing, ha ha!
Well, it's done now and it works wonders.
Once again, thank you for your time and precious help!
