  • How to get right time instead of GMT

    is there any way to get the correct time for my website (SC, USA) instead of having GMT?

    First you will need to change the time offset in the Admin CP > vBulletin Options to where your server is located *or* the timezone your server is set to, if different. e.g. some people have servers in say, New York but since they are in England they have the server set to GMT anyway. So you will need to find out what time your server thinks it is, figure out how far off that is from GMT, and use that as the offset in the Admin CP. You can easily figure out how far it is from GMT by the following:
    East coast of the US is GMT-5. So if it is 7:00pm on the east coast US, it is 12:00am GMT. So if your server is saying it's 4:00pm, and it's 7:00 where you are, then the server's offset is GMT-8. See?

    OK next step, edit your options in your User CP and change *your* offset to where you are, which is GMT-5.
