Die Dropbox API verwendet OAuth zur authentifizierung. Beim ersten Zugriff auf die Dropbox sendet der Dropbox server ein Request-Token. Der Benutzer wird zu einer Dropbox-Seite umgeleitet, wo er den Zugriff bestätigt. Anschließend wird mit dem gespeicherten Request-Token ein Access-Token ermittelt und gespeichert. Mit diesem lassen sich dann alle weiteren API-Anfragen authentifizieren.

    I just discovered your solution this evening, and it seems very simple. I am getting the same problem as Dekel however.

    Warning: file_get_contents(http://api-content.dropbox.com/1/files_put/sandbox/hst-number.txt?overwrite=1&locale=en) [function.file-get-contents]: failed to open stream: HTTP request failed! HTTP/1.1 403 Forbidden
    in /home3/crookedb/public_html/servicebuilder/dropbox/DropboxClient.php on line 214

    Slight difference in that I’m getting a file_get_contents error where Dekel is geting a file_put_contents error.

    Any ideas to fix this?

      I have just uploaded an Update:
      = 1.3 =
      * cURL is used if installed, this fixes some issues with PHP HTTP wrapper using cURL
      * Fixed minor bugs

      Please try this version, it might fix your issue.

  • Uli sagt:

    Hi Fabi, is there a reason that UploadFile() is not working? When using it (and removing the die() and the disbling of curl for it), I first got a
    HTTP/1.1 411 Length Required

    I solved this by adding
    curl_setopt($context, CURLOPT_UPLOAD,1);
    in UploadFile()

    Then it actually uploads something to Dropbox (my file is 30 MB, so you can see the upload time) but then the return from Dropbox is
    < HTTP/1.1 100 Continue
    Invalid or missing signature

    (Output using CURLOPT_VERBOSE => true)

    The HTTP header looks ok and contains the Authorization line:

    > PUT /1/files_put/dropbox/home/Apps/MyApp/home/user/file.pdf HTTP/1.1
    Host: api-content.dropbox.com
    Accept: */*
    Authorization: OAuth oauth_token=“gi1esduigefm5l2″, oauth_nonce=“805abd546b2b583a99664b27f679172d“, oauth_timestamp=“1357252187″, oauth_consumer_key=“btuk5prfdeja589″, oauth_signature_method=“HMAC-SHA1″, oauth_version=“1.0″, oauth_signature=“iPxe%2F%2F5u7CyoHqaNvmuBjd6NYFA%3D“
    Content-Length: 26691888
    Expect: 100-continue

    Do you know what could be the reason?

    Thanks in advance

    • Fabi sagt:

      Hello Uli,

      I thinks its because the API Parameters must be appended as a query string to the URL when doing a PUT request. Maybe cURL screws it up.
      It might help to compare the requests made by PHP wrapper and cURL using a network sniffer like WinScp.

    Thanks for this – I have dropbox enabled my web gallery that already a 1-1 „clone“ of the dropbox folder structure, so with this, I could easily add some delete functionality that makes sense!

    With kind regards,

    Would that be possible to use your class to sideload a file hosted on a remote server direclty to a dropbox account?

    For instance, I am browsing the web on my phone and I’d like to sideload to Dropbox some big files so I can find them directly on my box when I get home.

    Hi I previously asked about downloading dropbox files around november and I didn’t get a reply. I’m still curios as to how I can download a file from my dropbox app folder to a destination folder. I have tried different ways and its still not working. I’m not good with php so I need all the help I can get please or a sort of example to guide me.

    Hi I am trying to follow your code to create a folder but the code in step 2 and 3 are garbled. Can you kindly reproduce it?


  • PeterJK sagt:

    I am very very happy with your dropbox classes!

    Although I ran into one problem: I am trying to download en entire folder with images (50 of them). But when downloading, it stops at image 25 or 23 every time. How is that? How can I solve this?

    Is there a caching risk or something somewhere in the code?

    Thanks for your help.

  • Ron Knee sagt:

    Great – thank you very much!
    It worked more or less ‚out of the box‘, although to upload to a Dropbox subdirectory I made the following changes to DropBoxClient:
    a) inserted an extra variable into the second position here: public function UploadFile($src_file, $fold, $dropbox_path=“, $overwrite=true, $parent_rev=null)
    b) inserted this variable here: if(empty($dropbox_path)) $dropbox_path = $fold.basename($src_file);

    So $dropbox_path is always null.

    In Sample, you call the UploadFile function using 2 parameters – the second being the destination folder (put a slash at the end).


  • james sagt:


    the API-Calls (especially curl_exec($ch)) are very slow (at least in Vienna…)
    it takes around 0.8 – 1.1 seconds for each call. (it’s for sure not a problem of DropPHP, but of dropbox)
    Do you experience the same?

    you can measure this by extending the function apiCall:

    $start = microtime(true); // new line

    $json = $this->useCurl ? self::execCurlAndClose($context) : file_get_contents($url, false, $context); // existing line

    echo „duration apiCall: „.(1000*$duration).“ ms“; // new line


  • PeterJK sagt:

    @ james:

    Hi James,

    True. I experience the same. Even so much that much shared webhosting thinks it should stop my script halfway… 🙁

    Any solution to make this faster or to go around it?

    • james sagt:

      Hi PeterJK,
      I added some caching-functionality, that means I’m fetching only the list of files and save the information (json-ized) into a file in the tokens-directory. If there’ll be another request to the same list of files within the next 5 minutes, I’ll take the information from the cache.

      The list of files holds all necessary information to be able to display the files, but the link. That information ( GetLink ) I retrieve on demand, means, if someone tries to download a file the Link will be fetched and executed. I also cache that information. As the List of Files gives you information about the modification date of the file you can easily confirm wether the link you cached is still the right one or if it’s necessary to run „GetLink“ again to update the cache.

      Works excellent this way!

  • Neha sagt:

    This is such a nice article i spent out 5 hrs to work with dropbox but didn’t find something good which is workable but this article is awesome very easy to make it runnable. Can you provide me the way or code to download all the file or selected files from dropbox as i am not too expert in PHP code.

    Thanks & Regards

  • Lauda sagt:

    Could someone please make a patch for the caching stuff? At the moment it is a bit slow, so caching system is a must…but sadly, I’m not that good to implement that. 🙁

  • Hi! I got downloading file to server working. However, can anyone help me how I can get the file to download to the client computer; so for anyone who comes to my site would receive the file from Dropbox itself instead of going from dropbox to server to client?


  • Vignesh sagt:

    Hi Fabian,
    Your Script Works and i want users to upload to my account and i am using Dropbox uploader by Jaka Jancar for uploading it . But i cant create folder and manipulate it using that script.
    And how can it be done using your scripts??.
    Vignesh Dhamodaran.

  • Anup sagt:

    Awesome. Also, i would love to get a script which resides in the web server and automatically back up all the files and databasees in the webserver periodically over dropbox. That would be great.
