I have previously written a post on how to add SSH support to PHP, but that post is old, and it has now become even easier to get it up and running. And therefore making it much easier to auto upgrade WordPress via SSH. (automatic, yay!)
As root, do the following:
1: apt-get install libssh2-1-dev libssh2-php
2: Check that is installed: php -m |grep ssh2
3: Restart apache: service apache2 restart
And you should now have SSH support in PHP.
Just a quick post on what i did to get Groupwise up and running on Ubuntu 64bit:
1) Installed a 32bit virtual Ubuntu machine, and converted the Groupwise installer to a .deb package with “alien -c filename”.
2) Moved the .deb package back to the host machine.
3) Installed 32bit java libraries “sudo apt-get install ia32-sun-java6-bin”
4) Forced installation of the Groupwise client “sudo dpkg -i –force-architecture novell-groupwise-gwclient_8.0.0-84911_i386.deb”
5) And it works 🙂
