but i am getting the warning
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/Calcutta' for '5.5/no DST' instead [CORE\cake\libs\cache.php, line 429]
i tried to edit the php.ini file and set date.timezone to "Asia/Calcutta" it wont work??
new to xampp and cakephp.... am stuck!
