FTP time not displayed in local time - ProFTPD
18 September 2010
ProFTPD time does not show correctly on our server. After writing TimesGMT off in proftpd.conf, and restart FTP server, the time is still displaying in GMT.
Here is a way to get around this problem: insert export TZ=":/etc/localtime" into /etc/init.d/proftpd and save it. In proftpd.conf insert TimesGMT off, then restart FTP serser. It works on our server (CentOS 5.5 with ProFTPD).
Updated in 2013:
TimesGMT off is required to be placed inside <Global></Global> to be effective for some servers.
