Quick question

<input type=hidden name="date" value="<?php echo date("F dS, Y h:i:s A");?>">

allows me to place the server's time on mysql database, is there a way that I can change the time to a specific timezone instead off adding or substracting hours to make up for the diffrence?

Well, I Found how to do it, and with diffrent time zones, so if anyone is interested in doing so, this is how

<?
echo "Original Time: ". date("h:i:s")."\n";
putenv("TZ=EST5EDT");
echo "New Time: ". date("h:i:s")."\n";
?>

that sets it to eastern time

other times I found where

//putenv("TZ=EST5EDT"); // Eastern Time
//putenv("TZ=AST9ADT"); // Alaskan Time
//putenv("TZ=PST8PDT"); // Pacific Time
//putenv("TZ=MST7MDT"); // Mountain Time
//putenv("TZ=CST6CDT"); // Central Time
//putenv("TZ=GMT0"); // Greenwich Mean Time
//putenv("TZ=UTC0"); // Universal Time Coordinated

personally since I want to keep track of these zones, I created a file that is called upon by the scrip and simply has


<?
putenv("TZ=EST5EDT");
//putenv("TZ=EST5EDT"); // Eastern Time
//putenv("TZ=AST9ADT"); // Alaskan Time
//putenv("TZ=PST8PDT"); // Pacific Time
//putenv("TZ=MST7MDT"); // Mountain Time
//putenv("TZ=CST6CDT"); // Central Time
//putenv("TZ=GMT0"); // Greenwich Mean Time
//putenv("TZ=UTC0"); // Universal Time Coordinated
?>

like that it dosent inform the user that it is being changed, exactly what i wanted :D
