Telling the time in PHP adjusting for different time zones dvduval msg:1260436 12:51 pm on Aug 5, 2002 (gmt 0) I now have my site telling the time, but the only problem is that it is in GMT and I need Eastern Standard Time. Can someone help me adjust my time? (I'm pretty new at this) Current script looks like this: <?php echo gmdate("M d Y"); ?>

The first question is are you actually in EST, if you are you can just use date() instead of gmdate().
You can look at the
date function [ php.net]
If you are not in EST then you will have to convert and this may take a little more work.

Also check out the set_locale() function in the manual, I think you can do what you need with that...
