WP_Filesystem_SSH2::sftp_path( string $path )

Gets the ssh2.sftp PHP stream wrapper path to open for the given file.

Description Description

This method also works around a PHP bug where the root directory (/) cannot be opened by PHP functions, causing a false failure. In order to work around this, the path is converted to /./ which is semantically the same as / See https://bugs.php.net/bug.php?id=64169 for more details.
