From manual page:

I'm connecting to a Sftp server and try to open a directory on this server. It worked fine on php 5.3.10 and php 5.3.14 but since we upgraded to 5.3.21 it doesn't work anymore, opendir returns false.

Test script:
$con = ssh2_connect($server, $port);
ssh2_auth_pubkey_file ( $con, $login, $pubKeyFile, $privKeyFile);
$sftp = ssh2_sftp($con);
$dir = "ssh2.sftp://$sftp/";

Expected result:
the directory resource

Actual result:

This is discussed at, which notes that you can work around the issue by appending an explicit current-directory period.

I'm willing to try to create a patch for this. It'll be a little tough to write a test case for it, though--should I include a reference to a public sftp share?

This ticket may belong under PECL->SSH2 rather than directory functions.

I've done a build of 5.6.0-dev head with ssh2 0.12 and confirmed that this bug is still present.

To clarify, this issue specifically affects the root directory, if Michael and I are seeing the same thing. Subdirectory listing works fine.

Bug still exists with PHP 7.2.6 and SSH2 PECL Plugin 1.1.2-alpha 

Possible Workaround still is to appending a dot (.) to the root directory.

This is the same problem as bug #69981. I've put a patch there that fixes this. I also added a comment explaining the bug and the fix. I'm not sure how to get the fix into the code base though.

Is this still an issue with latest ssh2 (1.3.1)?
