Subject [jira] [Commented] (AIRAVATA-1379) Date() settings in PGA gateway
Date Tue, 12 Aug 2014 13:23:11 GMT


Marlon Pierce commented on AIRAVATA-1379:

I think we should use UTC.  An Airavata operator doesn't necessarily know where the server
runs in an Amazon cloud scenario, and the gateway operator needs to know the time zone used
by Airavata if converting to a more gateway-friendly time zone.

> The PGA gateway uses PHP's date() function to convert Airavata's time integer into human-readable
form. This results in a warning message:
> Warning: date(): It is not safe to rely on the system's timezone settings. 
> The solution is to set the time zone. This can either be done in the PHP pages that use
date() or else globally in php.ini file, but I prefer the former since it makes PGA more self-contained.

> We need however to confirm the timezone of the timestamp returned by Airavata.
