Thank you for the quick reply. I did restart everything except for php5-fpm which did the trick after a restart. After some more research into this method it seems it may not be very secure. Does anyone have any thoughts or opinions on this?
I am planning on implementing a user specifically for WordPress access via FTP to allow for automated upgrading of plugins and core.
