When I update my wordpress on openshift, I don't use the web admin
interface, I make the changes to my local git repo and push from
there. I think it ends up being a simpler workflow. Also, I believe
the rhc commands are only accessible through one openshift account,
but you can add multiple ssh keys to openshift to allow different
people to interact w/ it through git.
