New Users Give Different Time Zone

Hi. A few new user's posts are being assigned a time zone 4-hours ahead of the time zone they are in (Eastern). I've seen a few posts about this but the others who experienced it did so under different circumstances.

All of my users would be posting in Eastern Time, so I'd like to just make that the default time zone, and it was mentioned that I could do this via PHPMyAdmin by adjusting the the HourOffset column of the GDN_User table but would someone be able to clarify how exactly I would do so?? Here is a screenshot of the current settings for that colum:

Any feedback would be appreciated, and if theres an easier way to fix this, please let me know. Thanks.

    Sorry, didnt see this post from back in 2010

    You can set the a default time zone by editing the bootstrap.php file. All good now. Thanks.

    I apologize as this is not resolved. Can someone please confirm how I can set one master default time zone for all posts as apparently editing the bootstrap.php file did not do it either? Any help would be appreciated.
