Running Magento 2.1.6 and after going through many other problems this I hope is the last one. When I attempt to run //update/cron.php in ssh I get permission denied, this don't natter if I am using root or web user access. I've followed the steps as per Magento documentation for directory permissions but problem still remains. I believe this is what is making the cron check fail on readiness check on extension installations.
Is there a way to get this command run?
