Setting the correct time zone

Setting the correct time zone

Hi there

I'm hoping you can help with the following, as unfortunately my hosting company have not been able to set the correct time zone on my site.

They put the code date.timezone="Australia/Melbourne" into the php.ini file but it hasn't made a difference!

Currently when an order is placed the time recorded for the order is 2 hours exactly behind the current time here in Melbourne, Australia.

Do you know whether this would need to be put somewhere else or can I just hard code one of the relevant php files so that it adds 2 hours onto the current time that the server is registering ?

Any help or guidance you could provide would be much appreciated, it's not a big deal if it can't be resolved but If I can correct the time etc that would be cool.

That is the correct way to set the timezone in the php.ini file, the apache server will need to be restarted for the change to take effect though

you could also try editing the webassist/email/mail_php.php file and adding the following code at line 1:

<?php date_default_timezone_set("Australia/Melbourne"?>

Your last suggestion worked well for me. Can you make it a sticky?


Is there a way to archive a message like this in my own account?

Glad to hear this worked for you, I don't think it qualifies as a sticky though.

If we sticky'd every thread like this, it would be impossible to scroll past the stickies to get to new messages.

There is not a way to flag forum messages in your WebAssist Account, but you can create a bookmark to the message in your browser.
