Solution to Warning date(): It is not safe to rely on the system’s timezone settings.

headmaster @ 12:30 am

PHP ElephantI have several PHP sites that need to be upgraded so I set up a development server on one of my local computers. When I visit the sites locally the sites seem to work but upon enabling of the display_errors PHP directive the sites immediately display the following error:

Warning: date(): It is not safe to rely on the system’s timezone settings. You are *required* to use the date.timezone setting or the date_default_timezone_set() function.

There are others that can be considered diamonds in the rough and deserve some time to polish. There is however a limited number of OS apps that are truly awesome out of the box. In this post we will be looking at ExoScript’s Exo PHPDesk and determine into which of these 3 categories it falls.


How to Install prettyPhoto JavaScript Lightbox on a WordPress Theme

headmaster @ 1:14 am

WordPress DevelopmentThis tutorial emerged organically after writing the tutorial for Installing prettyPhoto JavaScript Lightbox.

My original intention was to document the steps I had taken in using the script in a regular good ‘ol fashioned site, (meaning non CMS or Blog script). In the process of writing said tutorial I had to show a working sample on this blog. Since this is a WordPress, Pretty Photo had to be made to work with the existing theme. So I did the install and re-wrote the tutorial to address what I did to make it work on this WP blog.
