First create test.php script to see what current time will be displayed for domain:

Code: Select all

sudo cat <<EOF >/home/SOMEUSER/web/EXAMPLE.COM/public_html/test.php
echo date('H:i');
Now open it via browser:

Code: Select all
It should show the current hour and minute.
If hour is wrong, then we need to tweak timezone for this domain.

Based on the tutorial for PHP-FPM pool.d conf files - viewtopic.php?f=18&t=54 - we need to do the following.

First, check what PHP version you are running on the domain.

In your SSH run:

Code: Select all

sudo /usr/local/vesta/bin/v-get-php-version-of-domain
The output will be, for example:

Code: Select all

Now we know the location of our PHP-FPM pool.d conf, it's: /etc/php/8.0/fpm/pool.d/

Let's edit your PHP-FPM pool.d conf:

Code: Select all

sudo mcedit /etc/php/8.0/fpm/pool.d/
Find the last line that begins with php_admin_flag
After that line, add:

Code: Select all

php_admin_value[date.timezone] = Europe/Berlin
Press F2 on your keyboard and confirm saving.

Press ESC twice on your keyboard to exit the editor.

In the end, restart your PHP-FPM by running:

Code: Select all

sudo systemctl restart php8.0-fpm
(NOTE: it may be some other PHP version, depending on what PHP version your domain is using)
