Server Time and location
Posted on 2006-07-18
I have a dedicated server LAMP + Plesk in a datacenter in Miami, FL. I live and work in Orange County,CA. All the scripts I write are for people in CA. So when I start cron jobs that are based on time I always have to remember to add three hours.
Im wondering if there would be any problem changing the servers date/time to PST instead of EST although its in EST time zone physically. Are there sync/ updte issues? I know Authorize.net makes sure your server is synced to there time, but I can't remeber if you can tell it what zone etc.
Anything I should watch out for?
