    in bootstrap.php find this:
    // Make sure a default time zone is set
    if (ini_get('date.timezone') == '')
    And change 'American/Montreal' to 'Europe/London'

    // 2014 EDIT: THIS IS NO LONGER CORRECT. The config setting is Garden.GuestTimeZone. In
    add this:
    $Configuration['Garden']['GuestTimeZone'] = 'DESIRED_TIMEZONE';
    e.g. 'GMT'.

    No problem. Here's a list of all supported timezones for anyone else who stumbles upon this discussion: http://us3.php.net/manual/en/timezones.php
  • To change Time Zone of on vanilla 2.0 Change the code on bootstrap.php => date_default_timezone_set('UTC'); to => date_default_timezone_set('TIME_ZONE');
    Its works, I did it with my website forum => http://forum.myhsebnotes.com
