How do I change timezone for PHP?

If you only want particular PHP scripts (and not shell or other cgi scripts) to use a specific timezone, set the timezone environmental variable in your PHP code like so:

PHP Code:
 echo "Original Time: "date("h:i:s")."\n";
"New Time: "date("h:i:s")."\n";

If you put the line putenv("TZ=US/Eastern"); in a file that is
include()'ed by all your other PHP scripts, then all your PHP scripts will use that timezone.

A list of timezones to choose from, other than "US/Eastern" for your putenv() is here:
