2.7: Automatic upgrade on non-standard SSH port? (4 posts)

    We're running WP 2.7 on a LAMP stack. We run sshd on a non-standard port to stifle the continuous kiddie script hack attempts that we've seen.

    The automatic update doesn't have an option to supply an alternate port. Is there a way to specify this (other than hacking the source)?

    Does anyone know if a ticket has been supplied for this to Trac? I wasn't sure, but this would interest me as well.

    Have you tried for hostname: mydomain.com:xxxx where xxxx is the port in question?

    Also look at this:

    I put the name of the host server thus:

    Hostname: webserver.mydomain.com:11111
    Username: myusername
    Password: **************

    Connection Type: [X] FTPS (SSL)

    With no change.

    I played with core control. It says the SSH2 transport is not available.
