MDTM FTP command

Updated May 3, 2017

Overview

This article describes the use of the Modification Time (MDTM) FTP command.

Environment

All Serv-U versions

Detail

The MDTM command implemented by FTP Voyager and Serv-U is used to preserve a file's original date and time information after file transfer.

Traditionally, when a file is uploaded to an FTP server, the date or time of the file is set to the transfer date or time. Using MDTM, FTP Voyager can inform supporting FTP servers of the proper date/time to use for the file. The format of the command is MDTM YYYYMMDDHHMMSS, where:

  • YYYY - the 4-digit year
  • MM - the 2-digit month
  • DD - the 2-digit day of the month
  • HH - the hour in 24-hour format
  • MM - the minute
  • SS - the seconds
