Dropbox cause internal server error

I added required keys just as mentioned on the link. However, it causes internal server error.
I created my app on dropbox as usual.

Share your error trace.

Hi rmehta,

Sorry for late reply.

sudo pip install --upgrade setuptools

this command fix the problem.

I’m having the same problem. You ran “bench update” and that fixed it? Didn’t fix it for me.
Any other suggestions?

Share your trace.

Hi Peter,

Sorry to hear that you had the same issue.

The issue appears because of a user mistake. Please do not forget to put coma after your password and dropbox access key. I thought there was a dot there instead of coma. This produced 500 internal server error.

 "db_name": "demo", 
 "db_password": "DZ1Idd55xJ9qvkHvUH", 
 "dropbox_access_key": "ACCESSKEY", 
 "dropbox_secret_key": "SECRECTKEY"  

This is weird. Fixed the formatting error in the KB.

Thanks @ferohers for reporting!

Thanks @ferohers - spot on! @rmehta thanks for fixing.

I got same Internal Server Error when I update bench.
After lot of searching I found this post.

Don’t add drop box key in site_config.
From latest release, we can configure dropbox backup from UI
