Very slow progress, i think i will finish it in about 2 weeks or more.
I think a better option for this would be to use Amazon S3 and download the world through Amazon CloudFront. The speed would be greatly improved.
I truthfully didn't start yet Been really busy lately. It's still on my to-do list
The Gaming Grunts Shevchik No worries guys, Im just thankful that you are actually working on it.
lmc That is an option, But I use DB for all my study work, so I would rather have all my stuff in one location rather than having it all over the place maybe these guys could incorporate Amazon in to the plugin if they have an API too?
Shevchik The Gaming Grunts Hey guys, Any updates?
My world is 3.5GB at the moment and that is excluding my dynmap files So a backup to dropbox would be aweosme.
I'm currently very busy so development slowed, but i'm still working on this.
I will look into the DrobBox api and see if I can create anything today
Sgt_Tailor He bud, did you manage to get anything?
Shevchik Are you still doing this?
Do you pay for dropbox? Because if you were to do weekly backups....
AndyMcB1 Yes, I pay $10 for 100GB.
I would only keep back ups for a couple of days and then delete them.
A plugin for this isn't needed at all. Your server can upload to the internet just like your PC can. Just log on to it (ssh for Linux, or VNC/RDP for Windows) open up your FTP program and upload to DropBox, or anywhere else. Hell, All OSes even have schedulers that can do this for you automatically (Linux would be easiest, just schedule a cron job to run a bash script that open ftp connection and uploads the world folders).
BillyGalbreath It is not a local server (Home server) It is a dedicated server with no SSH only FTP.
Also you can not FTP to DropBox.
Why would you pay for a host you have no access to? And since DropBox doesnt support FTP you can use another method it does support, like rsync or something.
I will take a look at it today and see how it goes.
BillyGalbreath As I have already said in this post, I prefer to use dropbox because it links in with all my college stuff and my stuff at home. I do not have the bandwidth to migrate anything at the moment.
Also my host is not a VPS so they do not offer SSH because the physical servers are shared/dedicated.

Is this project near finished? I'm looking for the same thing, would help me out a lot!
Gr0up115 I think Sgt_Tailor has started it, or is looking at starting it. I'm not to sure
I am working my way around the dropbox api, but I have been able to zip the worlds
Sgt_Tailor sweet, Not sure if it helps but you could possibly take a look at Minebackups source as they have dropbox api in it, but he didnt use the /chunk_upload so it will only upload files under 300MB.
Sgt_Tailor how did you go with the api?
Sgt_Tailor Hey mate,
Hows this going?
Sorry for keeping you guys in the dark for so long, but Uni has kept me busy for a while. I have taken a look at the dropbox api and have experimented with it for a bit. I think it should be relatively easy to do. I am now able to recursivly zip your word saves and will now work on uploading them. I however have one question: Would you also like to have the option to make the plugin download a backup back onto the server so you can roll it back if you need to? Or would you rather download the file to the server yourself? The way I was thinking this to work is to have a search option for backups within a certain period of time. A list will come up and you would be able to select a backup to download to the server. I am not sure if I can make the server roll back via the plugin, but I think it is better to do that manually either way. I hope to get this done by this weekend, but if you do not agree with my plan or have any other suggestion, don't hasitate and pm me, post a comment here or email me (PM me for my email address).

Sgt_Tailor To roll it back - download them and rename the folder, then re-create the server.properties file with the new correct name.
Hmm, I would agree on downloading and renaming the folder, but I think the server owner should always take the final step themself (deleting the old folder and renaming the new one)
Who is currently working on this? I would like to take a wack at it if no one else is!
Yeah true, maybe that could be an option for a seamless transition.
NextInLine I am working on it I got dropbox to authenticate, but I am too tired to finish it now. I will make the plugin upload the files tomorrow.
Will you be making this open source?
No worries dude, real life takes precedent over MC
I do agree with the option to download from DB, and like Andy said have the us do the final step.
Thank you so much for making this.
