Technology Errors

Type: Warning (2) Description: date(): It is not safe to rely on the system’s timezone settings

I recently upgraded a CentOS Linux servers PHP from 5.2.X to 5.3.X and ran into a couple minor issues along the way. One of the issues was the fact that one of my applications was complaining about PHP’s date function by letting me know that it could not rely on the system’s timezone setting. Fixing this problem is extremely easy and can most likely be resolved by a quick edit to the servers php.ini file as described in detail below.
