I just used the instructions on the Wiki to setup a custom PHP for the .ini. I'm looking to change the timezone to 'America/New_York', and I tried to use time_default_timezone_set('America/New_York') but it only lasts for the length of the session.
Do I not understand how ini works? Isn't there a way to change the timezone permanently?
Something I saw online talked about editing something in /etc with "ln -sf /usr/share/zoneinfo/EST localtime". Would that blow up my account?
