I am currently using the sample.php page provided with the code here.

Now it does create the access token just fine.

It also shows my account info as it should be.

It finds all the file directory's in the "files array" part.

It can upload a test image just fine to dropbox.

It can get all the meta data for current images in my dropbox folder.

However, I can not seem to download the images from dropbox!


The error i get once it gets to this code:

echo "\r\n\r\n<b>Downloading $file->path:</b>\r\n";
print_r($dropbox->DownloadFile($file, $test_file));

Is this below:

( ! ) Fatal error: Uncaught exception 'DropboxException' with message ' in C:\wamp\www\test\DropboxClient.php on line 634 

( ! ) DropboxException: Could not retrieve meta data from header data: Array

3 1.4278 344872 DropboxClient::getMetaFromHeaders(  ) ..\DropboxClient.php:223 

I'm not sure where i am needing to check out (either in the code or on the wamp side) in order to correct this issue above?

Any help would be great!

Did you consider asking the author of that API?

The quality of the responses received is directly proportional to the quality of the question asked.

I do not always test the code I provide, so there may be some syntax errors. In 99% of all cases I found the solution to your problem here: http://www.php.net
