Hello, I run my own web server and as of a few updates ago, the updater no longer functions.
Before, it was able to download and extract the files onto the filesystem all on its own but now it no longer does that and asks me for FTP information to perform an upgrade.
On 4.3 and 4.4, it would try downloading onto the filesystem and just tell me that something went wrong (without telling me what went wrong) and it asked me to do it manually but now it straight up prompts me for ftp information. I don't have FTP set up on this webserver and I don't want to create an SFTP account just for that. Am I perhaps missing some PHP modules or filesystem permissions? There are no errors in the logs that I can see so it makes this difficult to diagnose.
The auto-upgrader still works the same. If you're being prompted for FTP credentials, the most likely reason is that one or more of the files that needs to be updated has permissions set that don't allow PHP to overwrite the file(s).
