Our Server's Time Zone



See Also this article: https://support.quadrahosting.com/index.php?_m=knowledgebase&_a=viewarticle&kbarticleid=138

All our servers are set to the GMT / UTC time zone. This applies to both USA and Australian servers. The GMT makes it easy for everyone across different time zones to adjust to their own time zone accordingly. This can be done in the script by adding the required time offset from GMT.

On Windows, the only way to adjust the time zone on your script is by adding the required offset to the value you get from the time functions returned by your scripting language.

On Unix, changing the time zone seen by your script can be done by setting the TZ environment variable to one of the following values:
