- [Voiceover] In this chapter we're going to talk about…how we can configure time zones in PHP.…And to do that we first need to start out…by talking about how PHP…handles time zone identifiers.…In other words, what time zone are we in?…How do we identify the time zone…that we want to talk about?…The best resource for finding these…time zone identifiers is going to be…on the php.net website.…php.net/manual/E-N…or if you want to go to the manual…in a different language…you can just start it manual…and navigate to the right language.…
but if you're using the English version…E-N/timezones.php.…Let's take a look at that now.…So you can see the list of supported time zones.…And they've broken it down…by geographic area.…So for example,…if you're in America, like me,…you can click on America and you'll see…a list of all of the American time zones.…It's a very long list.…Now for me, I'm in the east coast.…So New York is going to be the closest…big city to me.…So america/new_york is going to be my time zone.…
Even though I'm not actually in New York…
