    Default Admin date & time in UK format

    I'm attempting to set the date and time on my Admin page to display in my local time (GMT).

    I've amended the admin/includes/languages/english.php to this:

    // look in your $PATH_LOCALE/locale directory for available locales..
    // on RedHat6.0 I used 'en_US'
    // on FreeBSD 4.0 I use 'en_US.ISO_8859-1'
    // this may not work under win32 environments..
    setlocale(LC_TIME, 'en_GB.ISO_8859-1');
    define('DATE_FORMAT_SHORT', '%d/%m/%Y'); // this is used for strftime()
    define('DATE_FORMAT_LONG', '%A %d %B, %Y'); // this is used for strftime()
    define('DATE_FORMAT', 'd/m/Y'); // this is used for date()
    define('PHP_DATE_TIME_FORMAT', 'd/m/Y H:i:s'); // this is used for date()
    define('DATE_TIME_FORMAT', DATE_FORMAT_SHORT . ' %H:%M:%S');
    define('DATE_FORMAT_SPIFFYCAL', 'dd/MM/yyyy'); //Use only 'dd', 'MM' and 'yyyy' here in any order

    which sets the display of date/month in the UK format in my Admin lists, but it doesn't alter the time displayed (it shows as GMT - 6 hours). Is there something up with my syntax, or am I altering the wrong thing?

    Thanks in anticipation.

    Phil

    Hi Phil
    Just for the experiment sake
    Can you test putting
    setlocale(LC_TIME, "fra_fra");
    and verify if you see any difference in the output?
    Thanks

    Thanks for that.

    I've altered it to 'fra_fra' (with single quotes as here) but the time still displays as GMT - 6 hours.

    Regards

    Phil

    I can see that setlocale not working on this server
    Who is your host? What os of the server
    Not sure but see if this helps from the link

    http://us.php.net/setlocale
    ----
    after the upgrade to the new stable (woody), you may have encountered that setlocale is not working at all, even though you have the files in the /usr/share/locale directory and everything was fine before the upgrade. in this case look at the /etc/locale.gen file, which contains the generated locales. if it is empty, you do not have any useful locales. to generate the needed locales run 'dpkg-reconfigure locales' as root and select the locales you need.

    Hi

    my host is running a Linux server.

    Is my problem to do with the fact that I'm running WindowsXP?

    Regards,

    Phil

    Client side OS doesnt matters at all
    Please ask your host as setlocale doesnt seems to work as expected on the server
    Thanks

    Thanks for the information.

    I'm running version 1.3.8 so I don't know if the contribtion you have pointed me to will work since it was last updated to 1.3.7. Has anyone tried it with 1.3.8?

    My host is in the USA and I'm in the UK, so it looks as though this is pointing me in the right direction, especially since the host is telling me a) the the server is properly configured and b) none of the other users of the server are reporting an equivalent problem.

    Regards, Phil
