W3HUB servers have been set up with the GMT Time Zone.
You can modify your scripts to use EST or any other timezone you need by the following methods :
1) Using the function "putenv" in php scripts :
To convert Time Zone using putenv
"Original Time: ". date("h:i:s")."\n";
echo "New Time: ". date("h:i:s")."\n";
2) By putting the following in the .htaccess file in your main public_html folder :
SetEnv TZ "US/Eastern"
?You can use 1st OR 2nd method however in case your choice is 2nd - all php data/time functions will use timezone in .htaccess.
Also you should use "US/Central" or "GMT-6", this is identical
