I upgraded my Ubuntu server to php 7 and setup ssh2. Afterwards, my WordPress plugins/themes will not update. I am receiving the Unable to locate WordPress Content directory (wp-content). This feature worked fine prior using php 5. My permissions were not changed and remain 755 (folders) 644 (files).
I am using the same ssh user as before, which is my primary user on the server. I unzipped the php7.zip file to create the pecl-networking-ssh2-php7 directory in my user's home directory. I made the extension and set it in the php.ini file.
Any ideas on what is hanging the plugin updater?
