When using the Special:ChangeUploadPassword feature of the Fiji/ImageJ wiki, an error message is reported:

Could not create directory '/var/www/.ssh'.

The operation is still successful, but this message may convince some users that something went wrong, when in reality it is a side effect and/or bug in SSH.

I fixed this by creating a read-only (and www-data-only) directory of that name. Since nothing can be written into it, we do not risk losing secrets ;-)
