Backup Times mixup

I’ve got a workflow with a cron node that is set to custom with 0 0 * * * … which should be at midnight. When I checked, the backup folder got created at 6 am this morning.

I then checked the executions, and according to the last execution of the Backup workflow, it ran at 5 am this morning.

{"id":"49390","finished":true,"mode":"trigger","waitTill":null,"startedAt":"2022-03-13T05:00:00.357Z","stoppedAt":"2022-03-13T05:00:00.983Z","workflowId":"42","workflowName":"Backup"}

Any idea what I might be doing wrong here?

Did you set the Timezone of your n8n instance or your workflow to the Timezone you want it to execute?

Just set from Default - (GMT-05:00) Eastern Time to (GMT+01:00) Amsterdam, and will check tomorrow morning. Thanks!
