Strict Standards: strtotime():

Hi Ray,
I have stated to get a new error,
Strict Standards: strtotime(): We selected 'Europe/Berlin' for 'CET/1.0/no DST' instead in /homepages/37/d415519235/htdocs/boatsforsalenow/boat-details.php on line 206

Strict Standards: date(): We selected 'Europe/Berlin' for 'CET/1.0/no DST' instead in /homepages/37/d415519235/htdocs/boatsforsalenow/boat-details.php on line 206
12/17/2017

Any Ideas what may be causing this
Many Thanks
John

You have to define the default timezone in your php.ini file, or if you are happy with the default that is being selected, you can turn off strict standards messages in your php.ini file. This can probably be done in your admin control panel from your hosting company. You may need to contact them on how to set it since I'm not sure what hosting company and plan you are using. This isn't an issue with your php code, it is an issue with the hosting server itself.

Thanks Ray
I am still trying to get answers from the hosting company. Usually the support is excellent but at the moment it is not so.

I found that strtotime(); had been embedded in two field codes. I removed these and the problems disappeared.

I wonder if they will return?
Regards

John

It is going to return any time you are referring to dates since the timezone isn't set on the server, your php code won't know what time zone it should be using. That is what the message means.

Eventually I deleted the date field and so far no problems.
I have been using these servers for years and never a problem suddenly there is.
I am told nothing is changed to cause this but the only way to fix the problem is have a dedicated server.
Thanks for your help

That doesn't sound right... probably the person you talked to at the hosting company didn't know what they were talking about. Do you have cpanel or pesk access?

You could just set it manually at the top of any page that needs it like:

php:
<?php

date_default_timezone_set
('America/Los_Angeles');
?>

Hi Ray,
They do not use cpanel or pesk but I could certainly set it manually in needed pages.

Would <?php
date_default_timezone_set('GMT');
?>
Be OK?

Will try
<?php
date_default_timezone_set('Europe/London');
?>
Many thanks
