ssh2 update failing

ssh2 update reports it is unable to find the wp-content directory. After a fair bit of testing, I have determined that the ssh2-sftp:// file paths are not reliable for many methods.

I've patched my copy of to use the ssh2-sftp-stat method to for a number of methods including: exists, is_dir, is_file, getchmod...

In testing this appears to be more reliable.

This looks and sounds like the broken PHP7 extension - #35517

In short: A faulty version of the extension was released which broke the file wrappers.

@billthor55 can you confirm you're running PHP7?

Yes I am using PHP7. I was having the same problem several months ago on PHP5. I worked around it then by using the ssh-sftp-updater plugin. This time both plug-ins failed.

The patch I provided returned valid values for the values I tested. The update completed as expected with the patch applied.

@billthor55 Thanks for getting back to me.

I'm going to mark this as a duplicate of #35517 then.
