You are *required* to use the date.timezone setting or the date_default_timezone_set() function.

  • Your PHP.ini needs to have the date.timezone setting
  • You can also add the setting to your .htaccess file php_value date.timezone America/Los_Angeles
  • or using date_default_timezone_set("America/Los_Angeles"); in you PHP script
