How to Configure Time Offset for Server

If your local machine and the remote server have different time settings, this can interfere with the overwrite settings.
To avoid problems, like inadvertently overwriting newer files, FileZilla/FileZilla Pro needs to know the difference in time settings between your local machine and the remote server.
This is called the ‘time offset’.

To configure the time offset for a server:

  1. In the main menu, click on File > Site Manager.
  2. Click on the site that you want to configure.
  3. Click on the Advanced tab.
  4. Find the Adjust server time, offset by setting at the bottom of the tab.
  5. Adjust hours and minutes forward or backward as needed. For example, if the remote server time was 1.5 hours behind your local machine’s time, you would set Hours to -1 and Minutes to -30.
  6. Click on OK to save the time offset.

Note: Changes made in the Site Manager only apply to files added to the queue after FileZilla/FileZilla Pro reconnects to the site using the changed information.
