The timezone in my dashboard for user logins is 4 hours off. How do I set timezone to be for my region?
Never used it by myself, but there is a “date/timezone” setting in the system-settings available. Hope this helps…
I found and entered US/Pacific… but then the dashboard stalled and would not load. Also erased recent login activity.
Hm…maybe it has to be named like a term over here:
'm not quite familiar with timezones…
Another possible option might be to edit the php.ini-file (or create one in your root folder if it doesn’t exist) with your desired timezone-setting.
I don’t think US/Pacific is correct.
See the list here.
As suggested, you may also need to set a timezone in php.ini in the MODX root directory (you can create the file if there’s isn’t one there already).
Thanks Bob. I’ll give that a try.
FYI, the format for the line in php.ini is:
date.timezone = "America/Los_Angeles"
Also FYI, SiteCheck will test to let you know if the various date/timezone settings match.
Thank you Bob. I just got SiteCheck. So I would change this in the ini file… not in the manager system settings?
It’s just important that they match. It shouldn’t matter which you change, but since you’re having trouble, I’d make sure there’s a php.ini file with the correct setting.
Yahoo… America/Los_Angeles worked! Timezone in the ini was UTC. In System Settings, timezone, value, I entered America/Los_Angeles. Now date for manger actions is accurate to my location, and the ini timezone value also updated. Thanks Bob. I very much appreciate your assistance.
I’m glad you got it sorted.
