Time different between my apache server and my local clock

I actually have two questions:

1. I try to get current time, but the time I got is 1 hour different from my
local time. I assume it is caused by Time Zone. So is there any easy way to
fix this? I assume that I can first get the Time Zone of the server by using
the T option in date, and then using my local Time Zone to calculate the
difference. But I am wondering if there is some buil-in function to do it.

2. I found out this also today while workng on the same project. My apache
clock is 10 mins slower than my local clock. Any suggection to calibrate the
apache server clock (I don't own the server)?

Thanks in advance.

Make a function like
(substitute mdifference, hdifference for the difference in the clocks and
adjust +/- accordingly, though this is untested it shoudl work)
function localdate()
{
$hourdifference = "1";
$mdifference = "10";
$hour = date('h') + $hdifference;
$minute = date('i') + mdifference;
if($i < 10)
{
$minute = "0".$minute;
}
$both = $hour.$minute;
return $both;
}
