Linux: phpinfo() system’s timezone error date.timezone

Posted on in Categories , , last updated January 18, 2011

I‘m getting the following errors in my log file whenever I use phpinfo() function:

[10-Jan-2011 18:39:08] PHP Warning: phpinfo(): It is not safe to rely on the system’s timezone settings. You are *required* to use the date.timezone setting 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/Chicago’ for ‘CST/-6.0/no DST’ instead in /home/servers/http/dev/testpc.php on line 2

How do I fix this problem under UNIX / Linux php running Apache or lighttpd web server?

Mediawiki Fix Internal Server Host Names / Redirection In shared Hosting or Proxy Setup

Our customer support wiki runs on an internal host (ip:192.168.1.100:300, hostname a-node100.:300) and it is behind the nginx reverse proxy server. However, our Apache server end up displaying internal server name http://a-node100.:300/, which results into an unexpected redirection and timeouts as http://a-node100.:300/ is not accessible over the Internet. How do I force nginx or apache to use the base URL of our server (http://support.example.com/wiki/)?
