date.timezone in php.ini for php5

My last post about glitch in time related function for php5 I use a function date_default_timezone_set

For global setting as always use date.timezone in php.ini

just change from :

;date.timezone =Asia/Jakarta

uncomment it first by remove semicolon mark into this :

date.timezone =Asia/Jakarta

save php.ini files and restart apache

try view using phpinfo()

you’re done 🙂

date_default_timezone_set for php5 date() fixation

Recent upgrade to php5 in appserv make me confuse when my friend ask me about this code :

print date(‘d-M-Y H:i:s’);

hour isn’t accurate

after googling I found about date_default_timezone_set

for full list of supported zone time see this link

edit  the code into

date_default_timezone_set( "Asia/Jakarta" );

// date.timezone = "timezone_here"

print date(‘d-M-Y H:i:s’);

work well 🙂

Migrating email accomplished (postfix+mysql+dovecot)

Fiuh, finally migrating email task is clear.

Almost 3500++ email account from vmailmgr based system moved to postfix with mysql backend and dovecot support.

thanks to Bendiken script that convert things magically 🙂

Generally the steps are :

1. Rsync email to new server

2. Change to dovecot style with migration script, make it in looping.

Just combined with little script like this :


ls /email/ | while read u1;

do /home/rasyid/tools/ "/email/$u1/" ;


write in one line and chmod +x to make it executeable.

3. Change ownership of email folder to postfix and symlink it to real place.


I’ve try roundcube mail and working fine for me. But since more user complain about some feature that not working well (perhaps browser issue) I change webmail back to squirrelmail 😉

back to epsbed report.
