Timestamps, VSFTP, Samba & files edited on a server
This has to do with coordination between external workers FTPing files, which are then edited on the server in the local network. We're all in Pacific time, and as soon as the file is edited on the server and saved, its timestamp is shifted 8 hours later for FTP clients & Windows users looking at the Samba share. Yet when I shell in & look at the dates, they display the current & correct time.
Here's what happens: anyone puts a file on the server at 11:05. Someone in the local network edits and saves that file five minutes later and its timestamp shows to all FTP clients and Samba shares as 19:10. My shell into the same directory shows a timestamp correctly as 11:10.
I found a previous post & tried including use_localtime=YES in /etc/vsftpd/vsftpd.conf & restarting, but that had no effect.
It's making it confusing to coordinate. Any ideas for a newbie? Thanks.
