time zone error log

Postby partove » Mon Dec 30, 2013 2:40 am

I have an error in /var/log/httpd-error.log as follows:

Code: Select all

[Sat Dec 28 23:27:10 2013] [error] [client] ojs2 has produced an error\n  Message: WARNING: strtotime(): It is not safe to rely on the system's timezone settings. You are *required* to use the date.timezone setting or the date_default_timezone_set() function. In case you used any of those methods and you are still getting this warning, you most likely misspelled the timezone identifier. We selected 'Asia/Tehran' for 'IRST/3.0/no DST' instead\n  In file: /usr/local/www/apache22/data/ojs23/lib/pkp/classes/announcement/PKPAnnouncement.inc.php\n  At line: 244\n  Stacktrace: \n  Server info:\n   OS: FreeBSD\n   PHP Version: 5.3.27\n   Apache Version: Apache/2.2.25 (FreeBSD) PHP/5.3.27 with Suhosin-Patch mod_ssl/2.2.25 OpenSSL/0.9.8y DAV/2\n   DB Driver: mysql\n   DB server version: 5.5.33, referer:

How do I fix this error?

Hi partove,

As the message suggests, you need to add a setting to your PHP configuration to tell it what time zone to use. The details of how to do this will vary depending on your server configuration; it may be a direct modification to php.ini, or a .htaccess file, or something else.
