    You can configure the Time Zone of the Server itself - under WHM (logged in as Root or equal) and select Server Time - pick your time zone.

    This will affect everyone one the server however, (including cPanel when you log in, but for ALL users).

    You can configure the time zone on a per-user basis with PHP scripts, by using something similar to the below on a page that is always called for certain applications (configure.php or config.php for example).

    Code:
    putenv("TZ=Australia/Brisbane");
    So you then don't have to change the Server time itself, if you don't want to/can't.

    Does this help at all? I'm not sure of a User-by-User custom Time Zone feature, but I could only see it complicating things.

    If GMT -4.5 is not available, it will require an update from the OS Vendor.

    GMT +9:30 missing

    Hi Darren,
    looking for a work around on this one, any ideas?
    When creating a clock for web pages the GMT+9:30 is missing, I am with MD webhosting and in Adelaide (Heatwave Central Time)
    One oddity is when registering for this forum, it asks for your time zone/daylight savings etc, which has all the right zones.

    BTW I am using the CPanel 11.16.0-RELEASE 18546
    and using the CGI Center's scripts including Counter and Clock, all are missing +9:30

    any ideas, greatly appreciated
    Bryan
