Possible to change server from PST to EST?


I’m currently located in EST zone and have been developing a site for some time now. I’ve made several databases in EST.

I’ve been looking on the admin panel but haven’t figured out to change the server default time from PDT to EST.

Appreciate any help.


You can’t. I believe that the consensus is that you can set the time zone in scripts, but not the database. Some Searching around here in the various forums should turn up some more info.



Thanks. I think I found what I needed.


I use in my root .htaccess file :

SetEnv TZ US/Central

which seems to work for most of my bits, regardless of what language is being used. You may need to change for your own TZ, of course.

responses to this thread will be emailed to me, thanks.
