Troubleshoot PHP date function?

I'm using a simple PHP snippet to display the current date and time, but it's showing tomorrow's date and time.

I verified that the server (Win Server 2008) the app (Drupal) is on has the correct date/time.

Where else should I check?

What's the PHP snippet?  PHP sites normally use the server time unless you have set the timezone to something else.  Depending on where you are located (like hawaii), GMT may appear as tomorrow.  See if Drupal is using GMT for some reason.

I think, it because of the timezone which is causing the issue..

check the timezone which is set? you can simply retrieve the date from a different timezone..

You're going to need something like this before your date() call:

date_default_timezone_set('America/Los_Angeles');

Open in new window


Here's the PHP manual page for that function...I hope it helps. At least there is a partial list of the possible arguments:

Cheers,

You can detect the timezone setting in effect on your server.

You can also find this information in the middle of the output from this script (shown in its entirety): <?php phpinfo();

This article might be helpful as you plan your work with Date and Time information.
