Ahhhh geez *slaps forehead*. okay, so the time stamps should be *close* to equal, and the difference between the two machines is about 23 mins, so that's okay, but: when I run echo date('d M Y H:m:s','1014261839'); on the two machines, I get different results. local: 21 Feb 2002 14:02:59 live: 20 Feb 2002 21:02:59 this is a difference of exactly 17 hours, so what is date() taking into consideration? the timezone of the server? if i'm putting timestamps into my database (in canada, apparantly 17 hours behind me), I just need to know what I need to do to that timestamp before running it thru date() to get my local time (melbourne/sydney) printed to the page. thanks, jsutin french > Jeff > > At 03:18 PM 2/21/2002 +1100, Justin French wrote: > >It doesn't seem to me like this is an issue... isn't the timestamp just > >the local unix time?
