Solving the PHP timezone on Snow Leopard

I had this problem for sometime, tried 100 times changing the /etc/php.ini.default and restarting the server.
But to say how stupid I am, it was only one more step for me to get this done.

Let me explain how I set the timezone on my snow leopard.

1. I got my /etc/php.ini.default opened in my text editor (I use textmate, and open it as the root user).

2. Find the date controllers, search for "[Date]".

3. Now I had to set my timezone which is "Asia/Colombo" (for PHP list of supported timezones click here)

; Defines the default timezone used by the date functions
; http://php.net/date.timezone
date.timezone = "Asia/Colombo"

4. Save the file and rename it to php.ini ( mv /etc/php.ini.default /etc/php.ini)

Dear Nivanka, greetings from Argentina. I´m afraid the open.whynotonline.com web site it´s off. (offline). It´s a petty because of the great jQery demos that (used) to be there.
There´s any chance that those materials can be uploaded or zipped on to other web page or posted as files at your blog? Maybe it´s just a server downtime... but i´ve been trying to acces the URL for a whole week now...
Thanks for your great plugins anyway!
Mauro from Mendoza.

Hi Mauro,

yes I am not working at whynotonline.com now. I noticed the sites are down as well. But I will try to get the plugins and the web pages to a new domain name, soon. if you need to know anything feel free to drop me an email.

Really love to read your comment!
