strtotime errors

#1 | Posted: 12 Feb 2008 23:28 
I keep getting these errors:

[Tue Feb 12 23:19:49 2008] [error] [client 66.249.66.168] PHP Strict Standards: date(): It is not safe to rely on the system's timezone settings. Please use the date.timezone setting, the TZ environment variable or the date_default_timezone_set() function. In case you used any of those methods and you are still getting this warning, you most likely misspelled the timezone identifier. We selected 'America/New_York' for 'EST/-5.0/no DST' instead in /srv/forum/index.php on line 11

I get it where ever strtotime() function is being used. Does anyone know why this all of a sudden would start or how to fix it?

What do you have for $dateFormat option?

Is this error related to miniBB in general?

$dateFormat='j F Y H:i';

Is this error related to miniBB in general?

Its not a miniBB problem but I was thinking someone might have had the same problem. It has worked fine for a long time. I think it might have started when mod_php was updated.

Also people have been complaining because they are getting the:

"Anti-spam protection: the system prevents you from making more than one post every 60 secs!"

And it counts down from 75 min not 60 secs.

There is def. something wrong with the way php is counting and getting the time.

It seems that I have upgraded php. Is there a way to set the default timezone in one file instead of editing all the places it gives the error?

http://docs.php.net/manual/en/function.date-default-timezone-set.php

Note: Since PHP 5.1.0 (when the date/time functions were rewritten), every call to a date/time function will generate a E_NOTICE if the timezone isn't valid, and/or a E_STRICT message if using the system settings or the TZ environment variable.

http://docs.php.net/date


Errors/Exceptions

Every call to a date/time function will generate a E_NOTICE if the time zone is not valid, and/or a E_STRICT message if using the system settings or the TZ environment variable. See also date_default_timezone_set()

OK I got rid of the errors by changing the line in php.ini

date.timezone = America/New_York

Is this the correct fix?

Ok that didn't fix the problem. Users are complaining about the

"Anti-spam protection: the system prevents you from making more than one post every 60 secs!"

They say it takes forever to count down, any ideas?

I personally have no ideas... count down definitely works if you have everything configured the right way... but if it doesn't work, it's a question of a deep investigation why. I never met such problem before.

Does miniBB use the local system time to calculate how long its been since the last post?

miniBB uses 2 PHP functions for calculating the time difference between previous and upcoming post: time() and strtotime(). It depends on how these functions were configured in your PHP, I suppose there is some problem in PHP itself, not miniBB...

does time() and strtotime() use the servers local system time or the end users? if it uses the servers system time and it was changed, this would create an error right? (if the time was set back)
