server time?


Recommended Posts

the time being shown for posts and the Time Now: being shown at the bottom of pages is currently 19-20 minutes behind real time.

 

in my time zone, it's currently 7:37 am. the time at the bottom of the page is 7:18 am.

your post above shows - Posted Today, 08:02 AM for me.

 

i also tried a different browser and the result is the same, 20 minutes behind. my profile settings for time zone is correct. i'll set my time zone to something else, then back to see if it corrects the issue. just more ipb crap.

 

edit: changed my time zone to central and back to mountain and even tried the variations of the DST check-boxes, the hour changed as expected, but the minutes are behind. guessing something in the back-end settings under my username have 'adjusted' the timezone by 20 minutes.

I actually have a reminder in my phone calendar each month to go in and sync the server time.  I ran into an error using the Google API that it wouldn't let the AUTH happen cause the time my server was returning was too far off from what they expected, so it wouldn't authorize the api call.  As soon as I synced the time, the api loaded just fine again.

FWIW, this was because the time on the host machine was off. Phpfreaks is running in a virtual server, so any attempts to fix the time locally were doomed. We had to get the host server date/time fixed, and Eric setup NTP so hopefully this problem will not re-occur in the future.
