All of our web hosting servers are set to the New York Timezone (Eastern Time -0400 UTC). Occasionally, clients will have scripts that require a timezone local to them. Unfortunately we cannot change the entire server’s timezone, therefore we have provided this alternative method.
You can change the timezone for your account or for a specific folder by adding this rule to your .htaccess file:
SetEnv TZ Timezone
For example, if you wish to change the timezone to Asia’s Bangkok area, you should add this line to your .htaccess file:
SetEnv TZ Asia/Bangkok
This way your scripts will use your local time instead of the server time.
