I know that timezone must be set correctly, but I have set timezone correctly in php.ini ie Asia/Calcutta. And i cant move forward with installation.
After a while I thought to change timezone to London, and this time there is not error
date.timezone = Europe/London
;date.timezone = Asia/Calcutta
it would be great if somebody could why my timezone ie Asia/Calcutta did not work.
Tried this on my machine and I am able to replicate this I get the following error
date.timezone setting and validity date.timezone option in php.ini must be set correctly.
I am thinking this could be related to the version of Apache/PHP I am using PHP 5.3.28 and Apache 2.2.26 running on Macports.
Can you advise on what version of Apache and PHP you are using.
It is not actually related to the version of PHP or Apache it needs to be added as
date.timezone = Asia/Kolkata;
Calcutta is the historical English name for Kolkata as per the wiki http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kolkata
Thanks Kirk, you are right it date.timezone = Asia/Kolkata
I was following the below link, and there are two entries ie Asia/Calcutta & Asia/Kolkata , I did not notice the later one.
Thanks again Kirk for pointing me in right direction, I cant believe why i did not notice that; though I am based in India
