GMT Time setting domain

Post by danipapi »

The setting for the GMT time in domain parameters is doing the reverse of what is writed.

File timestamp using GMT time (if not checked will use local time).

If we check the box, local is applied and if we don<t check the box, GMT time is applied.

How do you know about that? Most FTP client will use GMT time by default, and WingFTP has no such issue also.

As per your answer i'm probably wrong but find below some explications.

I based my results on a simple test, upload a file using FTP Rush or Filezilla (same result with both).

When the checkbox is checked (server considere timestamp as GMT), if locally is 3:52:00 PM, the file time displayed in ftp client after upload is 3:52:00PM that represent the local time, not the GMT time.

If I uncheck the settings (server considere timestamp as locally), the time displayed is 11:52:00 PM that represent the GMT time we actually have here UTC -05:00 + Summer Time (+1 hour) = UTC -04:00.

I also compared my results with this website https://www.epochconverter.com/

Thanks,

Regards !

Already told you, the file modify time in the FTP client is converted from the GMT time, if you are so curious about it, please look into the raw FTP reply string.
