Time Settings


I have this in my php.ini:

date.timezone = “America/Kentucky/Louisville”

When I echo: echo date(“Y-m-d H:i:s”);

I get: 2012-10-19 09:46:12

But my real time is: 2012-10-19 05:46:12

How come it’s not correct??

What date/time does the server think it is?

How many php.ini files are there on that machine?

Are you using CLI PHP at all?

I’m not sure. I know at least two but one I never mess with because the “main” one I think overides it.

I put this at the top of my page: date_default_timezone_set(‘America/Kentucky/Louisville’);
and that fixed the time (at least for that page.

I think what I need to do is set the time in .htaccess because that way it will be set when I move to a real server.
