Timezone error with Joomla

Postby jbruku » 25. January 2010 04:47

Hi All,

I am trying to set up a site locally using XAMPP 1.7.3 and Joomla 1.5. For some reason I am plagued with the following errors all over the frontend of my site, and in the article manager on the backend. I changed the php.ini specs on date.timezone = to 'America/New_York' but it is still not working. I made sure that that was the Loading Configuration file, and just cant get to the bottom of this. Any help is appreciated.

Warning: mktime() [function.mktime]: 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 'America/New_York' for '-5.0/no DST' instead in C:\xampp\htdocs\Joomla150\libraries\joomla\utilities\date.php on line 117

AND

Warning: strftime() [function.strftime]: 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 'America/New_York' for '-5.0/no DST' instead in C:\xampp\htdocs\Joomla150\libraries\joomla\utilities\date.php on line 250

Do you use the zip-Version of XAMPP?
Have you followed the installation instructions?
Look in your phpinfo()-Report if your timezone is setted
Search in your php.ini for the [Date]-Block and check if your timezone is setted

date.php has no reference to [/color]

Not many instructions in the zip install. Timezone does not show that it is set in phpinfo. The error states date.php not php.ini Any idea where I should be looking?

But the few infos in the readme_en.txt file.

readme_en.txt wrote:* QUICK INSTALLATION:
[...]
Step 1: Please start the "setup_xampp.bat" and beginning the installation. Note: XAMPP makes no entries in the windows registry or adds new system variables.
[...]


This setup_xampp.bat file sets a default timezone in your php.ini. If you havn't run the setup_xampp.bat file, you can run it now.

Thats because the strtotime() and date() functions of joomla are in the date.php file, which causes this warnings.
