View Full Version : SSI Time Zone Problem

03-29-2007, 04:16 PM
I have found only two choices so far:

<!--#echo var="DATE_LOCAL" -->
gives me the local time at the host's server

<!--#echo var="DATE_GMT" -->
gives me GMT.

I am in the UK, my host is in Germany.

Is there a version that will give me my local time i.e. so that it changes from

23 March 2007 15:00 GMT
29 March 2007 15:00 BST

Without me changing the pages manually.

I'd rather not use javascript or PHP so can anyone help with a nice easy SSI solution?

Many thanks.

SSI doesn't allow you to do any calculations and so you are stuck with local time and GMT which are the only ways of extracting it. To get a specific timezone you need to extract it as GMT and then use PHP to apply the appropriate offset.
