old code, will update soon because does not use pdo, mysqli
code uses mysql

$qfetch='SELECT * from email_doc';
$fetch=mysql_query($qfetch);
while ( $row = mysql_fetch_object( $fetch ) );



echo ' '.date("D", $row->real_timestamp);
echo'<br>'.date("M j, g:i A", $row->real_timestamp);


this is unix_timestamp which is unix_timestamp with an hour added



1379358861
1379359341
1379362620
1379445757
1379446700
1379448620
1379492114

these values are different on different servers.  Is there a way to set timestamp

I created another column and I need to add 4-6 hours depending upon which server I am hosting information even though value is hardcoded in datebase table.

Please read the article here.  Look for the part about PHP and MySQL Have Different Time Zone Settings (but please read the entire article - it has background information you need in order to understand what you're getting into!)

I have read the article and I do not know why this specifically occurs so I have created a question with more details and testing.  Thanks for the information.
