Sometimes the time set on your server isn’t accurate to what your local time is. If you can’t change it, you can adjust it yourself.
$today = date('Y-m-d-G'); $today = strftime("%Y-%m-%d-%H", strtotime("$today -5 hour"));
If your server thought it was 12 midnight, but it was really 7 pm, this will roll the $today variable back five hours to be correct.
The preferred way for PHP5 and above is to use:
A list of the possible values are here:
My programmer stated he cannot adjust the time in the database for we have no provision to update config files on the server and the coding is already adjusted.
The hosting provider will not adjust the server time.
You can sync the server clock with a NTP server.
Yep, definitely use date_default_timezone_set(‘mytimezone’);
earthlink only hosts php 5.0.5 and that time zone changing function is not available… =\
(PHP 5 >= 5.1.0)
thank you OP
Yes i also support to use date_default_timezone_set(‘Your Time Zone’);
If you have full control over your server then you can change php.ini to locate your timezone.
Great work… i love to read codes from this site.. and reading such content has become my new hobby now a days.. keep it up.
I used date_default_timezone_set() function and it worked for me.
