Date Modified off by 6 hours in Files Panel

Hello,

 

I'm fairly new to Dreamweaver.  I'm using CS6.  When I upload/put a file and then look at the date modified, it is ahead of my local time by 6 hours.  I am in the same timezone as the remote server (MST).  When I view the file in FileZilla or via SSH, the Last Modified time is correct, so it appears the the file info is correct, but Dreamweaver is reporting it incorrectly for some reason.  In fact, the date/time is even correct in Dreamweaver's File Activity Log!

 

I've hunted through the settings and have found nothing about timezones. I've googled and googled and googled and not found an answer to this.  I did find this thread which sounds like the same problem, but there has been no solution posted: http://forums.adobe.com/message/4240567

 

Any help is appreciated.

    Are you *SURE* you are in the same timezone as the hosting servers? Sometimes your local hosting company might lease server space from servers in Timbuktu!

    What is your website's IP address?

    This is an interesting question. My site is hosted on servers in TX (CDT). I'm in DE (EDT).

     

    I have just created, saved, and then uploaded a file containing this code:

     

    <?php

    echo date("H:i",time()) . "<br><br>";

    $file="test-time.php";

    if (file_exists($file)) {

         echo "$file was last changed: " . date("F d Y H:i:s.", filectime($file));

    }

    ?>

     

    My local file shows 3/29/2013 2:05 PM

    My remote file shows 3/29/2013 12:05 PM

    When I run the file, I get:

     

    13:11

     

    test-time.php was last changed: March 29 2013 13:05:39

     

    So, it appears that the timestamp of 12:05 is 1 hour earlier than the server time of 13:05!

     

    I'm checking this....

    None of this negates the incredibly misinformed answer you got from the chat, though!

    In the past, Daylight Savings threw things off.

     

    In my experience, some hosts don't bother to change the clocks so even when we are in the same time zone, my clocks and theirs don't always agree.

    However, we know that's not the case from my reading of the timestamp in the PHP code.
