I have an problem with Dropbox api. I successfully installed and checked PHP all are ok. but every time connection asking the access token. I need to upload without any questions ask dirrectly upload file and download if needs. 

 

Every time i need to follow these steps to get upload the file...... copy the token and past into $authCode.

 

$authorizeUrl = $webAuth->start();
echo "1. Go to: " . $authorizeUrl . "<br>";
echo "2. Click \"Allow\" (you might have to log in first).<br>";
echo "3. Copy the authorization code and insert it into authCode.<br>";
$authCode = trim('A23fdddsefsersfSFDSFd1BhBaikCob6bFDxkNSU');

list($accessToken, $dropboxUserId) = $webAuth->finish($authCode);
echo "Access Token: " . $accessToken . "<br>";

$dbxClient = new dbx\Client($accessToken, "PHP-Example/1.0");

You only need to obtain the access token once.

 

It looks like your code echos the access token, so just copy that (or get a token by clicking the "generate token" button on the app console) and then change your code to just this:

 

$accessToken = "<the token you obtained>";
$dbxClient = new dbx\Client($accessToken, "PHP-Example/1.0");

(Everything else in the code snippet you shared can be deleted or commented out, since you don't need to do it once you already have an access token.)
