ssh2 FS_METHOD will not work with various php versions

Due to this PHP bug -

ssh2 as FS_METHOD will not work with various version of PHP.

Namely, WP_Filesystem_SSH2::is_dir() will always return false. The workaround suggested on the above PHP ticket should resolve the issue - using the intval() function in WP_Filesystem_SSH2::sftp_path() should resolve the issue, although I haven't tested this across a tonne of php versions.


public function sftp_path( $path ) {
                if ( '/' === $path ) {
                        $path = '/./';
                return 'ssh2.sftp://' . intval($this->sftp_link) . '/' . ltrim( $path, '/' );

Hi @ocean90

I'm not entirely convinced that that is the same issue, although it is definitely related. I should have mentioned in the report, but this issue occurs on PHP >=5.6.28,<7.*

The issue you linked certainly looks like a bug in the php7 ssh2 extension from the ubuntu repos - - it seems the workaround for the issue that people are using is to install the pecl ssh2-1.0 extenstion instead (which is only compatible with PHP7.x.
