Configuration variable date.timezone is not set, help wanted to fix :)

Hi all,

Having a bit of bother trying to resolve the following suitecrm.log file issue:

“Mon Jun 12 19:22:58 2017 [1974][-none-][FATAL] Configuration variable date.timezone is not set, guessed timezone Europe/London. Please set date.timezone=“Europe/London” in php.ini!”

Well, I’ve tried adding the above to my php.ini file, both with and without the quotes with no luck.

I’m running SuiteCRM 7.8.2 on Debian 8.7.1 if that helps…

Any help would be really appreciated, 'cos this error is swamping my log file! :frowning:



There is more than one php.ini in your system - one for the web server, and one for the command-line (CLI).

Those errors are probably coming from the CLI whenever a cron job runs (like every minute!).

To locate the several php.ini files in your system, you can use

sudo find / -name php.ini 2>/dev/null

To see which php.ini file your CLI is using, type

php -i | grep php.ini 

Hi pgr,

Fixed! :cheer:

It was the Apache2 php.ini that was the culprit!

both php.ini files have Europe/London added (without quotes)…

And my logfile is…quiet!

Thanks very much.
