#55469 new enhancement

WP_Filesystem_SSH2::chmod() should use ssh2_sftp_chmod()

WP_Filesystem_SSH2::chmod() currently uses ::run_command( sprintf( 'chmod %o %s', $mode, escapeshellarg( $file ) ), true ) (which calls ssh2_exec()). It has essentially been this way since WP_Filesystem_SS2 was introduced in [8812].

However, some sftp servers do not allow ssh2_exec() to be run, generating PHP warnings such as:

PHP Warning: ssh2_exec(): Unable to request command execution on remote host

and on those severs all calls to WP_Filesystem_SSH2::chmod() basically become noops.

Luckily, starting with version 0.12, the ssh2 extension introduced ssh2_sftp_chmod(), and WP_Filesystem_SSH2::chmod() should be changed to use it.
