  • How can i change the time on my board

    Hello. I am the webmaster of fragoff.net we are nearly ready to launch however, the time is completely incorrect. I set it to my timezone however the time is still many hours off. How can I manually change the time? Thanks.

      Hi there,

      had the same problem, I adjusted the time offset in the CP to GMT although I'm not on GMT but GMT +1.

      My hoster has screwed up local time and gmt time in the server setup and keeps pretending that everything is okay.
      Here's how I proove that via SSI:

      date_local: <!--#echo var="date_local" -->
      date_gmt: <!--#echo var="date_gmt" -->

      Checks both times and you see what's going on regarding server time.

      hth,
      -Tom

          Sorry for the late reply...

          Just create a normal .html file, put both lines in and rename the file to .shtml

          SSI has to be enabled on your server in order to function,

            You need to find out from your host what timezone your server is located in, and set the option in the Admin CP > Options page appropriately. This will allow the board to determine GMT. From there, set *your* timezone under User CP > Edit Options and it should display the correct time for you.

              Hi tube,

              you're right, but:

              My hoster keeps pretending that everything is set right on the server. When I look at those variables

              date_gmt - Saturday, 16-Jun-2001 11:44:21 GMT
              date_local - Saturday, 16-Jun-2001 13:44:21 MEST

              It seems that there's someting wrong.

              I understand that GMT is never going on DST and we're currently on DST, but nevertheless I couldn't set my correct timezone, which is GMT +1.
              The clock would show 12:49 though it's 13:49 here...

              I set vB in the CP to GMT and every user to 0 offset and now it shows the correct time


              I don't understand that and I don't have a good feeling about that, but it works this way and no other as far as I can see
              cu,
              -Tom

              P.S.: @vortex6930 & Atif - I hope you have more luck!
