error in timezone. What happened?

 8:04 am on Jun 13, 2010 (gmt 0)


I'm using mediawiki to build a website and in many case, when the php uses date( ) function, it appears the error "It's not safe to rely on the System's Timezone settings....." .

I understand that this is a quite common question, and i've spent many time to search for solutions. I tried it but it just doesn't work for me...

In c:\xampp\php\php.ini , i set my timezone there. (my computer clocks is in Asia time now, but i set it to Euro
; Defines the default timezone used by the date functions
; [php.net...]
date.timezone = "Europe/London"
; [php.net...]
;date.default_latitude = 31.7667

; [php.net...]
;date.default_longitude = 35.2333

; [php.net...]
;date.sunrise_zenith = 90.583333

; [php.net...]
;date.sunset_zenith = 90.583333

And in mediawiki's setting file - localsetting.php, i've also added:
#Set Default Timezone
$wgLocaltimezone = "Europe/London";

Do you know why it happens to me...?

Did you restart Apache after making the changes to your php.ini?

If you did and it still didn't work then maybe PHP is using another php.ini file, try creating a script that runs phpinfo [php.net] and look through the first table for where it tells you the php.ini path.
