default timezone broken on windows?

Hi all!

I just noticed on windows (2003; php 5.2.5) the LOCAL timezone is set
to UTC by default. I have never experienced this on linux before...

I digged the manual and found this:

The timezone set using the date_default_ti mezone_set() function (if

The TZ environment variable (if non empty)

The date.timezone ini option (if set)

"magical" guess (if the operating system supports it)

If none of the above options succeeds, return UTC

The fourth line "if the operating system supports it" - well I did set
correct timezone for my system and I'm sure it's doable to get current
timezone from windows API ;) Yet it doesn't mention what systems are
supported and what are not.

Is this just me or everyone on windows has the same problem?

In MS SQL 2000, I would like to obtain the timezone offset from UTC for a given date. For today's date, I can do DATEDIFF(ss,GETDATE(),GETUTCDATE()). However, the offset for a future date may not be the same as today because some countries go in Daylight Saving mode. Can you suggest a way to obtain the timezone offset for any given date? Thanks Yash

I'm (still) working on an ISO 8601 date parser. I want to convert at least the formats described here: http://www.w3.org/TR/NOTE-datetime Well.. I've got most of it working (via RegEx's) good enough for me but I'm having a brain block when it comes to TimeZone. The datetime may come with an optional timezone offset (from GMT) as here (the offset is +1 hour from GMT):

Hi! If I correctly understand v7.4 manual, value, say, '2003-11-26 12:00' in TIMESTAMP WITHOUT TIMEZONE column should output '2003-11-26 19:00' for "+08:00" timezone. The following test results seem to be somewhat unexpected. Restting OS timezone (/etc/timezone and /etc/localtime in Linux) does not make the results more comfortable.

I have the following code for a clock in my gui. Everything works fine EXCEPT the following line when the TimeZone is changed in the windows. string tz = TimeZone.CurrentTimeZone.StandardName; It will not pick the changed timezone but it does pick up time change due to timezone change.

Hi, I have a datetime value that is already in GMT (UTC) time. What I would like to do is convert this value into Pacific Standard Time, but I also need to account for daylight savings time. Simply subtracting eight hours from the value will give me the proper time (subtracting seven hours if daylight savings time). I tried using the TimeZone object to see if the value is in daylight savings time like this If...

Hello, As far as I can tell from the php.net documentation and other documentation I've seen, date("T") should return the server timezone in 3-character format, i.e. EST, MST, etc... http://www.php.net/manual/en/function.date.php However, when I run date("T") on my machine with php 4.3.10, I get:

Hello: I would like it so that the time displayed was always for CDT/CDS. Potentially, the application can be run at locations in Mountain Time or Central Time. This is what I have now: // get the UTC offset depending on day light savings double hourOffset = DateTime.Now.IsDaylightSavingTime() ? -5 : -6; DateTimeOffset offset = DateTimeOffset.UtcNow.ToOffset(TimeSpan.FromHours(hourOffset));

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows. In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
