what do you mean by "..does not change the server time permanently..."
as far as i can understand you want your wamp server to take the time specified by your operating sys. as a mater of fact it is doing that. but it is not taking the timezone specified by your operating system. http://us2.php.net/date_default_timezone_get to set the env variable globally 1. right click on my computer 2. go to properties. 3. go to advanced tab. 4. click on environment variables button but i believe date.timezone php ini option is best for you PS: i dont use windows any more(not since an year) and the above is from my memory. -- PHP General Mailing List (http://www.php.net/) To unsubscribe, visit: http://www.php.net/unsub.php
