cakephp will not launch properly


I'm trying to get into cakephp and downloaded the cakephp docs on my computer.
I have Apache 2.2, PHP 5 and MySQL installed and all sites that I program on my local webserver run perfectly, but when I launch cakephp, this is what I get to see (see attachment). I didn't change anything to the original cakephp files, it's just what I see when I launch the default app.

I run the app on port 1000 (http://localhost:1000/first_app/)

Any idea what could cause this error and how I can fix it?
Warning (2): strtotime() [function.strtotime]: It is not safe to rely on the system's timezone settings. You are *required* to use the date.timezone setting or the date_default_timezone_set() function. In case you used any of those methods and you are still getting this warning, you most likely misspelled the timezone identifier. We selected 'Europe/Paris' for '1.0/no DST' instead [CORE\cake\libs\cache.php, line 570]
