Php cli timezone


how can i make
$filename = date(“Ymd-h”).".mp3";
refelect the current time in my timezone, eastern ?

<?php $timezone = -4; // I think EST is -4 hours GMT $est = (gmdate('U') + ($timezone * 60 * 60)); $filename = date("Ymd-h", $est).".mp3"; ?>


ok i tried to get it to work
looks like i get the right output if change timezone to +3
does that make any sense?


In fact it should be -5 hours, I’ve checked the EST time here and here

Do this

<?php echo gmdate('h:i a d-m-Y'); ?>

and compare the time given with the GMT time here
