I have 2.6.15 running on a server that sits in the US Mountain timezone.

I have my user setting set to US Eastern Time/ New York.

The page displays
Current Time: Tue Jul 19 15:22:40 America/New_York 2005
when it is 11:22:40 am in NY.

Do Not set Timezone is set to NO

1) how do I verify what time my server thinks it is?
2) how long should I expect it to take for my timezone changes to be visible on the page?
3) what is the most likely problem?

Thanks!

Is the forum installed on a win32 system?

The fact that "America/New_York" is printed for the timezone indicates that the selected timezone value is not supported by your system.

Have you tried using any other timezones?

This is a valid unix timezone, which simply appears not to be supported on your system.

Yep, I tried several others. No joy.

If I leave the server tz blank and my user tz blank, it does show the server's internal time.

hmm Ok let's try a simple script
<?php
putenv
("TZ=America/New_York");
echo 
strtftime("%a %b %e %H:%M:%S %Z %Y") . "<br>\n";
?>
