Does the server time need to be reset?

Postby Guest » Thu Sep 25, 2003 11:18 am

this will say it was posted at approximately 10:15am.

the actual time is approx. 11:30am PDT.

unless the server is located, say, in the galapagos islands or thereabouts, this is probably wrong.

I believe this is the same problem as reported here. And my clock says 11:30 right now, so you and I are at least a few minutes off.

Good catch...it could be a DST thing.

Although, I really do need to find more ways to fit the word Galapagos into more posts. It's fun to type. Try it. C'mon. All the cool kids are typing it...

Bored at work, found this:

4.7.2 Time Zones
To have the board time show correctly, please select your time zone. The
time in phpBB 2.0.0 does not work with Daylight Savings Time, so if you
have Daylight Savings Time, add 1 to your GMT modifier. So if you are
in GMT-5 and have DST, you will need to set your time zone to GMT-4.

Dunno if 2.0.4 does work, couldn't find the documentation for it.

Hey all...

This being the first daylight savings change since this here eplaya was born, forgive the time wierdness. I have discovered that we will have to change the phpBB system time every a time change occurs.

Question: If we switch the system time, right now, today, is this going to annoy, irk, or otherwise screw up anyone's dealio? Or will it make everything better and herald a round of cheers?

Thanks for your patience. Keep the feedback rollin.

Just pull the trigger and do it.

I'm curious if one of NIST's freebie apps could be linked to phpBB to synchronize the time with the atomic clock? I use their free stuff to synchronize my PC clocks everyday. I'm still late to everything as I'm time challenged but at least I know how late I was.
