Assuming you have a unix-like OS and the timezone you mention is set to the
system clock I will have to guess that PHP uses different zone from the

Try setting the date.timezone setting in your php.ini and see what happens
(don't forget to restart the web server to make changes take effect) or use
the ini_set().


1. It is possible that the php.ini files are different.
2. Run phpinfo() to check where the php.ini file your web server uses is located.
3. Check that the timezone settings are correct.
