I guess I should really know this by now, but there has been something about the install instructions that has always left me a bit baffled. someone else alluded to a similar issue a week or so ago, and I have a few minutes to ask my question now.
How should I set the various timezones in the system?
currently I have modified safe_mysqld to have the lines
# added by barry per slash install instructions
So I am pretty sure I am OK there.
But what about the system time and the hardware time, and the system time zone? Until just now I had both times set to be what the time is in merry ol' GMT, even though I am in California. And I had the time zone set to America/LA.
But I have always wondered about that - now I have set the system time and the hardware time to local time, and left the time zone alone.
Ass you can see from my site, (www.i18n.com) I have modified the templates so the date/time of the story does not display. But I am having second thoughts about that, and I ant to add the time back. I will probably want to display the time as local time, with the "GMT -7" notation.
So do I have the correct settings now, did I have them before, or is there something else? Also, will I need to adjust the settings for daylight savings time (which comes in less than a week?)
