Incorrect Time Being Used by Script

    We have discovered that the incorrect time is being used by the script. We have confirmed the server time is correct. PHP default is set to UTC-0. And in general settings, the correct timezone is selected, -6 in our case. However, all database entries are inserted using UTC and not UTC-6. This has caused issues with events. Is anyone aware of something we may be missing? We were unable to find anything in the search.

    You can set the server time "Locale Settings" this should set your server set-off time, which will add a plus or negative hours to your current server time.

     

    Members can set their own time-zone. This should create the time of the New set-off time from the server.

    So for example:

    Server time is: 18:00, Your -6 hours, member +3

     

    Actual current server time is 18:00 -6 = 12:00

    Add member set-off time +3

    So the actual member time will be 15:00


    So if the event is 16:00, the event hasn't started yet

     

    NOTE: The software will write the current time without set-off time to the database and everything is calculated from that time
