If you’ve just upgraded to PHP 5.3, your scripts will probably generate a bunch of timezone errors.

Warning: date(): 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 'Europe/Helsinki' for '2.0/no DST' instead.

Obviously, the solution is to use the date_default_timezone_set() function, but that means you need to change scripts that ran perfectly well and warning-free previously.

There’s another approach. You can set the default time zone in PHP’s configuration file so that it won’t bother you again (at least on your server). To do so, fine the date.timezone setting in php.ini and change it thusly:

date.timezone = Africa/Maputo

Now the warnings will be gone.
