Update WordPress plugins via sftp (ssh)

I have an FTP server running on my web server to easily update plugins via the web admin page since the default WordPress install only allows updates to be made via FTP and FTPS. FTP is an old protocol that is insecure. To update via sftp (ssh), install libssh2-php in Ubuntu and restart apache (credit here).
