    PHP Code:
    define('ADMIN_PASSWORD_EXPIRES_INTERVAL'strtotime('- 90 day')); 
    That has nothing to do with time zones. The only timezone setting that I have changed were in my other thread:
    One may think that there is no timezone relationship, but the system is not able to say what time it is currently to be able to compare the current time to 90 days before or after today... So, it too is a factor of the timezone and is something that should be a known value to support operation.

    The admin panel continued to work fine for a few days....

Whether the solution is to add a command to an .htaccess or if it is possible to have/generate a php.ini file or not is to be seen.
    Our host suggested a change to the .htaccess file, but they won't allow changes to the php.ini file

    Correct - I couldn't access my original user profile after a password change.

    I need to resolve the issue but have no idea what is causing the lack of access.

    So it worked and then it stopped working... what changed?

    If I remember correctly, though I probably didn't, I thought in one of the posts related to this that php related information as gathered from the admin->version area had been provided. That same information if gathered again may show what "new" options have been disabled or how php has been altered. Otherwise, would look again at the htaccess file to validate that it contains the content expected. Not too long ago on a server not so far far away, had a service modify or as they thought of it "update" the htaccess of a site. Made their things work "wonderfully" but completely disabled everything else about the site... fortunately only went unnoticed a couple of hours for a site that mostly provides information rather than paid for services, but still...

    Point being, if identify what changed, can identify what to do next.

    I cannot remember making any changes myself to files that would kill access to the Admin portal. After the fix, I added and used the Plugin CKEditor....

    The sites, from my limited understanding, appear to work in tandem. Neither site nor admin worked, then both started working when the changes were made to the set-time-zones.php file.

    In /my_admin/.htaccess:

    Is there a file or list of files that I could have a look at?

    The htaccess file that would be in question would likely be the one in the root of the store not the one in the admin directory.

    Thing is, when the store started working again successfully, was a complete backup made of the files? If so, how do those compare to the current store files? Is the change that was placed in whatever htaccess file still there or does it need to be applied again? In the future, if something fixes the problem, it helps you (and others) to specifically identify what fixed the issue. That way it could be a sort of backup in public...

    I didn't finish searching for what was needed because of all the reports of the problem being fixed at the time.

    It looks like you might see a solution to that specific issue if in your catalog's .htaccess you added:


    Code:
    php_value date.timezone 'Africa/Johannesburg'
    This would be the file located at: /var/www/vhosts/joburlnx.ehost-services221.com/joburgonline.com/.htaccess

    There wasn't a file as above, so I created the file in that location, and added that line, the only line in the file.

    No difference....

    When say no difference, does that mean that the front/catalog side STILL works, still DOESN'T work? The Admin STILL doesn't work? Does that mean that the same mydebug-adm file is being generated or is there different content?

    If the catalog works but the admin does not, and there are no error messages about the catalog side timezone setting, then would again take a look at includes/extra_configures/set_time_zone.php as well as admin/includes/extra_configures/set_time_zone.php to see if/what difference there is.

    Also, would apply the above suggested htaccess modification to the admin/.htaccess file, try again, and report results.
