Hi everyone....I have a problem on my php date function... and i hope someone will help.... the PHP date function outputs incorrect results... It outputted incorrect date which is 8 hours late.... and i found out that the timezone has been set to UTC. So ive search the net and found out that you can set the timezone by explicitly adding a code date_default_timezone_set('Asia/Manila'); for example coz. im from the Philippines. So i tried the code and it works fine, but when i set date.timezone = Asia/Manila in the php.ini file. It doesnt work... I hope i can find answer here coz. these has been my problem for a long time... any response would be greatly appreciated tnxs :'(

try to use php function to set the correct zone.

date_default_timezone_set('xxxx/xxxx');

if the php.ini settings does not make any change, try to ask the host's support. if you host your own website, try to restart the server.

This may solve your problem..

<?
if(isset($_POST['tz'])) {
    // store the selected value for future use in DateTimeZone
    $_SESSION['tz'] = $_POST['tz'];

    // timestamp to convert (just an example)
    $currentdatetime=date("Y-m-d h:i:s A");
    $timestamp =strtotime($currentdatetime); //1240349566;
    // set this to the time zone provided by the user
    $tz = $_SESSION['tz'];



    // create the DateTimeZone object for later
    $dtzone = new DateTimeZone($tz);
    // first convert the timestamp into a string representing the local time
    $time = date('r', $timestamp);
    // now create the DateTime object for this time
    $dtime = new DateTime($time);
    // convert this to the user's timezone using the DateTimeZone object
    $dtime->setTimeZone($dtzone);
    // print the time using your preferred format
    $time = $dtime->format('g:i A m/d/y');

    print $time;



}
// create an array listing the time zones
