Wordpress SSH2 Updates
I followed the instructions here to get SSH2 updates working in Wordpress. However, when trying to update or install anything in Wordpress (themes, plugins, etc.), I get the error:
Update Failed: The theme is at the latest version.
This seems to be a permission error, because if I change the ownership of all the Wordpress files from wp-user:www-data to www-data:www-data, the updates will work correctly. However, I don’t want the webserver process to own all of the files. It is kind of weird because the permissions on wp-content are the same for owner and group. Any suggestions?
