Comment (by S1L1K0N):

 Similar issue as everyone else, FTP within WordPress 4.4 is not working.
 Some details below.

 FreeBSD 10.2-RELEASE (OS)
 php56-5.6.14 (and associated supporting libraries/modules, all 5.6.14)

 WordPress error upon attempted theme installation (theme below is an
 Could not copy file. /data/www/mmfa/wp-content/themes/sweetheat/404.php

 Whenever I try to install a theme, plugin or even re-install 4.4 from the
 Wordpress dashboard I get the 'Could not copy file.' error; this was
 working fine under WordPress 4.3.1; same supporting applications as above,
 filesystem permissions have not been modified from when they were working
 (they are 775).

 Apache24 keeps recording the following in my error log
 (/var/log/mmfa/error.log) everytime Wordpress tries to call it's FTP

  PHP Warning:  Illegal string offset 'name' in /data/www/mmfa/wp-
 admin/includes/class-ftp.php on line 730, referer: http://www.mmfa.lan/wp-

 Looks like something is borked in ../wp-admin/includes/class-ftp.php after
 the 4.4 upgrade, but I'm not a PHP wizard so I can't say what.

 Earlier today I was trying to get support through the main wordpress
 support site, https://wordpress.org/support/topic/ftp-not-working-
