Default Time Zones With Xampp 1.7.4

Postby Apophis55 » 22. July 2011 01:01

Hello. Apologies if this has already been answered but a search of the forum revealed answers to previous versions of Xampp and not 1.7.4.

In previous versions of Xampp, in order to change the default time zone one had to make changes to 2 files:

    C:\xampp\php\php.ini
    C:\xampp\mysql\bin\my.ini

Has this changed with Xampp 1.7.4? Navigating to C:\xampp\mysql\bin\my.ini I no longer see an option to set/change the default time zone.

Thanks in advance.

In previous versions to 1.7.4 (for example 1.7.3) the setup_xampp.bat file took care of this chore.

In 1.7.4 several 1.7.3 features have been omitted, so you would need to add the my.ini file entry manually.

In the my.ini file you would need to add the line in red in the location defined below, like so
myisam_sort_buffer_size = 8M

default-time-zone = "Australia/Brisbane"

log_error = "C:/xampp/mysql/data/mysql.err"
pid_file = "mysql.pid"


In the php.ini file look for and edit this section
Code: Select all
[Date]
; Defines the default timezone used by the date functions
; http://php.net/date.timezone
date.timezone = "Australia/Brisbane"
Remember to save the files and restart Apache and MySQL.

The above time zone is for my location and the default, if unchanged, is Europe/Berlin.

The time zones for your particular location may be found here:

I suspected as much but wanted confirmation prior to proceeding just in case it was defined elsewhere. Thanks for the assistance Sharley.

Try the php-function setlocale().
But be careful. It depends on the OS-Version you use, which is the right setting to set.
