Description

(Imported from help.mit.edu #397407.)

jceggles:

I exported my TechTime? calendar as an iCal and uploaded it to PHP iCalender and the events are 4 hours off. I've been looking online and don't see a fix for this. Since the Oracle calendar is in wide use here, I figure somebody is doing this.

geofft:

Hm, a 4-hour time discrepancy sounds rather like PHP iCalendar not knowing about your time zone - and indeed, the standard config file defaults to GMT.

If you edit the file "config.inc.php" in your install directory, you will see a line about one screen down with the text:

$timezone = '';

Change this line to read:

$timezone = 'US/Eastern';

This should introduce the proper 4-hour time difference from GMT. Let us know if iCalendar continues to give you problems.
