Location of Server? GMT Offset


I’m using a php program that isn’t showing the proper time right now. Does anyone know where the dreamhost servers are located? I have it currently set to GMT-8, assuming they’re in california.

I’m using PostNuke if that helps.


ya DH servers are located in La, but time functions are normally set from GMT. I think East coase would be GMT -4 Chigal is GMT -5… Hope that helps



Dreamhost servers are in California. California is UT-8.

East Coast United States would be UT-5, with Central and Mountain time zones falling between the above.

UT in this instance is an abbreviation of UTC which is abbreviation of Coordinated Universal Time, which is distinct from, but functionally almost identical identical to, GMT.
