date("g",x) where x is some int literal will print out 
different things depending on when I load it, either 2 hours 
before or after the actual time. 

Reproduce code:
echo "[[" . date("g:ia",39600) . "]]";

Expected result:
At this point I'm actually not sure what the correct time is. 
PHP gives me 4:00am or 6:00am depending on the page load.

I have no idea what could be causing this.

Actual result:

-- next page load --


-- next page load --

Is there any sort of server configuration that could screw this up?

The only thing that could cause this is when you are playing with the TZ environment variable in your scripts. Try to print out the timezone abbreviation in your script too and see what it does.
