Closed#235: date_default_timezone_get warning

Apache/2.2.13 (Unix) mod_ssl/2.2.13 OpenSSL/0.9.7l DAV/2 PHP/5.3.0

This issue has become more severe because of Symphony’s more “aggressive” error pages. The problem seems to be a missing timezone setting in PHP’s ini file.

Something like this would be helpful in this case:

date_default_timezone_set(Symphony::Configuration()->get('timezone', 'region'));

But I don’t really know where to put this…

A quick and dirty fix is to put a timezone setting (hardcoded) around line 15 in /symphony/lib/boot/bundle-php, like so::


I’ve just noticed that there is already a function that sets the default timezone, see class.datetimeobj.php

Line 78 of lib/core/class.symphony.php has the line you speak of:

DateTimeObj::setDefaultTimezone(self::$Configuration->get('timezone', 'region'));

According to github, it’s been there a long time.

This isn’t something that can be fixed with code, PHP essentially wants you to configure it to know what timezone you are in. The only fix is to change your php.ini file.

Found the problem. The Log was trying to use the DateTimeObj::get() function a few line above where the default timezone is set. I have moved said setting of timezone to be immediately after the loading of config details. http://github.com/symphony/symphony-2/commit/160d8ed0d8dfae4a997b6dab1ef7a3d91dd9e4a9
