I guess I should have said 'is the hour wrong on both?' (LOL) , but that is moot as I now know both servers are reporting the same time.

Having looked at DateTime.pm & Time::Local, I'd bet that the time adjustment is not working at all (unless it works 'somewhere else' as a fudge)

I see no way to get the client local TZ.


I'll e-mail or talk to you about it, Dandello.

Thanks Ron

I remember fighting with this and not really winning - what I've found is within YaBB itself some items are saved with a 'localtime' time stamp (which may or may not be UTC depending on the server and offset) and some are saved in UTC. At some point we need to get all the time calculations based on UTC.

  

If you only have one solution to a problem you're not trying hard enough!

Yes, the time is wrong on both.

My bet is that the DST will auto correct when DST was supposed to kick in - we have the same problem will all our radio set clocks at home. They just didn't get the message that the date to switch over had changed.

Maybe. All my radio set clocks changed over to the correct time. One of them is about 12 years old

There were problems with DST compensation in earlier versions of YaBB. the server itself is on UTC (as far as I know) so its time may not be the same as Greenwich time. I can tell you the server itself is keeping correct time. Part of the issue is that start and end dates in any given TZ are subject to political whims.

I don't remember all the problems, but we had a go at them fairly recently, I think in YaBB 5.2. I think I discovered it had a Date Line issue. (i.e. if a server was more than 12 TZ away - kaboom -- reason the time is expressed as +- 12 hr adjustmesnts BUT it does not fix the date.  I had a test with a Russki Time Zone to ensure I was right.

I need to ask - is the time wrong both on the beta and yabbforum.com/community? They use two different codebases.

The minutes should be almost dead on at this point.

Edited:
(21:45 UTC) I just took out the 'shim' on beta, it had migrated over there with the data
I agree with your assessment on the current DST adjustment, I think its a cluster-f**k issue. (having done this kind of stuff myself)
I suspect the problem is with start/stop date calculation -- or it DST fix might not be working at all  One of the problems is that the EU and GB do not have the same dates for 'Summer Time' as the U.S. I actually can't recall what we did/did not do on this



Thanks

Something I noticed today (besides being off -10 minutes) is that DST didn't auto-correct.

I do have "Enable automatic Daylight Savings Time change" box checked.
