When daylight savings goes away

Recommended Posts

I'm wondering what code modifications we will have to do if the government eliminates the changing of daylight savings in the USA in the fall of 2023.  I do not know if such a thing is hard coded into a php version or if it checks a global clock somewhere or what.  If it's hard coded into the php software, will we have to upgrade to a specific version at some point to accommodate for the USA change?  Or maybe this is something in the apache server instead and has nothing directly to do with php.

The DST information would be part of the timezone database.  From what I can tell, PHP includes a bundled copy of this so you'd generally just update PHP to get an updated copy of the database.  There is a PECL extension you can use to update the database independently.  If you keep things up to date then there shouldn't be anything to worry about I believe.
