Can anybody help me understand why I am suddenly getting the following error message? ERROR: Dropbox API: (6) Couldn't resolve host 'content.dropboxapi.com'

That looks like a DNS failure. The content.dropboxapi.com domain is resolving properly for me right now though, so it sounds like your computer/server may be having network or DNS issues. You or your hosting service would need to look into that on your side. Apologies I can't be of more help!

Thanks for your reply! Not being tech savy when it comes to servers, can you tell me what I would ask my host provider to be looking for?

It should be enough to say that you're unable to resolve 'content.dropboxapi.com'. Make sure to include any and all error output you're getting though.
