I’ve been talking to dropbox reps, and trying to get Xcloner to work with the API 2.0 and this is my Understanding so FAR, The first issue is on there end : This is the Link provided by the Xcloner Notification E-Mail:

DROPBOX: Starting communication with the DropBox server…
Authentication required. Link to Drop Box I Tried to Show but this Forum won’t allow me to show you all the Info you might need……..

To Start the %2F Right before home needs to be removed, The Rep Explained it’s the “Sloppy” way Dropbox is handling the request…(ALSO If you DON’T remove the %2F Dropbox gives you a 500 Server Error, After you Click Allow, When You remove the %2F you get what I show below in the address bar)

So Then I Removed the %2F right before “home” in the Link and get to the Allow APP page to grant access, And when I click Allow: I get: Server Not Found

And This In the Address Bar of My Browser:


And that’s Obviusley not going to work… The **** are Edits on what MAY BE sensitive Info….

So as Far as I can tell, The Program itself isn’t sending the Correct Callback URI for DropBox?

It would have to be something to the effect of //my-web-site.com/XCloner/cloner.cron.php?auth_callback=1&oauth_token=************&uid=*********, And carry out the operation after the TOKEN SWAP….

This is the Closest I’ve gotten to getting this working, This looks like the last thing holding this up…..

If you need anymore info let me know I’ll provide what I can.

Also if this is not a BUG and I’m just messing up my Apologize, But as far as All the Trouble shooting I’ve done the /home/******/public_html/XCloner/cloner.cron.php?auth_callback=1&oauth_token=************&uid=********* in the address bar was kind of a give in to me…..
