jazer Posted February 27, 2006 Share Posted February 27, 2006 Hi TCH'ers, I have submitted this issue through the help desk but I am hoping I can get some assistance here. We've encountered a strange bug of some sort with the date() function in PHP. Here's what's happening: upon calling date(), we are getting times that seem to fluctuate by 2 hours in either direction. You can hit this file to test: http://uwarboretum.org/phpinfo.php Reload it many many times and watch the time change back and forth from 4am to 6am. This is the PHP code from that file. As you can see, we are not doing any manipulation of the timestamp... it seems that the server time coming back is just changing on the fly!! <?php echo "<p>The current time: " . date("g:i:sa") . "</p>"; echo "<p>This is date(\"g:ia\", 39600): [[" . date("g:ia",39600) . "]]</p>"; ?> This is causing all sorts of havoc on our site -- as you can imagine when event dates and times start changing at random. We have already logged this on PHP.net but haven't received any helpful feedback there. I'd really appreciate any insight you folks can provide. Thanks very much!
