Change timezone on your website

Here is a good way to change the timezone of your website if the timezone of server is not the same as your region.

Create a file .htaccess or modify the current one to add this line :

SetEnv TZ America/Montreal –> If your city is Montreal
SetEnv TZ America/Chicago –> If your city is Chicago

Note that you can use the function php “putenv” and put it on all your pages to make the new timezone active :

<?php
putenv(“TZ=America/Montreal”);
?>
