Request #53593 phpinfo() triggers system timezone warning
Submitted: 2010-12-22 04:57 UTC Modified: 2010-12-22 11:02 UTC
From: anthon dot pang at gmail dot com Assigned:
Status: Not a bug Package: Unknown/Other Function
PHP Version: 5.3.4 OS: Ubuntu 10.04
Private report: No CVE-ID: None

Description:
------------
phpinfo() should not output raw warning because:

1) it is redundant; the table already states: Default timezone America/New_York

2) phpinfo() is not a date/time function, even if it uses one internally; http://php.net/manual/en/function.date-default-timezone-set.php

3) the warning is emitted between rows of an HTML table, resulting in invalid markup

Propose either suppressing the warning, or pretty printing it, so it doesn't break the layout.


Test script:
---------------
<?php phpinfo();

Actual result:
--------------
date

Warning: phpinfo() [function.phpinfo]: It is not safe to rely on the system's timezone settings. You are *required* to use the date.timezone setting or the date_default_timezone_set() function. In case you used any of those methods and you are still getting this warning, you most likely misspelled the timezone identifier. We selected 'America/New_York' for 'EST/-5.0/no DST' instead in /path_to_script/phpinfo.php on line 1

You have to set a correct timezone in your php.ini, doing it will kill this warning.
