Using SVN192 pro I am getting a one hour difference between the time stamps (in the file name) between a run from the back end interface and a run using the native command line backup. The command line time stamp is correct.

Does the site time zone setting affect this?

Yes, if you back end time zone is not adjusted for Daylight Savings, your backup time would be off by an hour. The command like backup doesn't load a user, so it doesn't know about the offset that Joomla! is using. I'm not sure that quite fits your facts. :)

Please keep in mind my timezone and cultural differences when reading my replies. Thank you!

My time zone is EST (UTC -5) (click here to see my current time in Philadelphia, PA)

I'll check the offset for Joomla!
Thanks Dale.
