SFTP deployment through Hexo is failing because the $SSH_AUTH_SOCK env variable isn't set
Ok, I’m trying to deploy using hexo deploy with their SFTP connector and I’m getting a ‘Timed out while waiting for handshake’ and I think it’s because it’s looking for an environment variable $SSHAUTHSOCK on the server and it isn’t set. The $SSHAUTHSOCK is the hexo default, I could change it but basically I need an env variable that points to the agent path.
Hexo doc for this feature is here, https://hexo.io/docs/deployment.html#SFTP specifically the agent parameter.
