Illegal or unknown default time zone - mysql

Postby demon510 » 09. January 2010 16:55

mysql wont start up so I searched the logs and found out why. 100109 9:33:05 [ERROR] Fatal error: Illegal or unknown default time zone 'America/Chicago' Anyone have a solution? I have read that I can comment out a line in the my.cnf but I cannot even find this file.

ok I was able to figure it out.

In the my.ini file you can change the following line:

default-time-zone = "-06:00" <-- change to your appropriate GMT Zone. Mine is Central Time Zone or you can comment out this line so you can get mysql fired up till you resolve the issue.

What's your XAMPP and MySQL version?
