strftime problem

Recommended Posts

I have this problem with my oscommerce v2.2rc2


Warning: strftime() [function.strftime]: 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_admin_directory/file_manager.php on line 198


Any solution?

First rename your shop admin directory and apply the security patches to secure your site if you have not already done so (more info on this can be found via my profile)


Secondly delete admin/file_manager.php and remove the option from the tools box as it is a known security hole.


If you have access to php.ini try adding


a php.ini at my installation's root with the following line and it worked fine.




Obviously use whatever time zone you want.
