  • Time zone right, time wrong

    Can't seem to figure this one out. I have my time zone set as -6 (Central time), and it's 12:48 AM as I write this, but on my forums, it says, for some of the last posts, "Posted 38 minutes ago at 5:43 AM"... Can someone help?

    vBulletin gets its time from the server. You need to set the timezone in the Admin CP to whatever you want the default to be and the DST settings should match whatever settings are on the server.

    Then each user needs to set their local timezones/DST in the User CP. If you do this correctly and the server time is correct, then the correct times will show.

    This also assumes that you have not modified the footer template to affect the DST detection code in it.

      Sounds like your server clock is off.

      Edit: Dang Steve, don't you ever sleep?

        I checked with HostGator; they said server time was correct.

        You said something about the footer template. How should the code look?

            Change your own option to the correct time.
