Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 30367
xferlog/syslog records with timestamps in UTC instead of local timezone
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:31:54 EDT
All transfers logged to /var/log/xferlog or syslog are UTC timestamped
(instead of local timezone). This is because in chroot'ed environment
there is no information about timezone in use.
Workaround: put copy of the /etc/localtime zoneinfo file into /home/ftp/etc
directory (may be accomplished by postinstall script in RPM package?)
*** Bug 33573 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
The same problem occurs with ls output in rh7.2 (wu-ftpd-2.6.1-20). I was able
to workaround this by copying /etc/localtime into the chroot()'ed environment.
Please verify this with a newer version of Red Hat Enterprise Linux or Fedora
Core and reopen it against the new version if it still occurs.
Closing as "not a bug" for now.
