    Unhappy date(): It is not safe to rely on the system's timezone settings

    Hello again,
    recently i'm getting this error when i try to backup in my site.

    Connecting to DB `idownlo`.
    2011.08.01 00:36:34
    An error occurred!
    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 'Asia/Dubai' for 'GST/4.0/no DST' instead (2)

    here is a image plz help me http://lulzimg.com/i24/b906ed.jpg

    Not many errors that tell you how to fix the error. Maybe that's why I've never heard of this before.

    Yes, there is a file that you need to modify. It's the php.ini file. (You can see the path of it in your phpinfo() details).
    Open the file with a texteditor (Nano, vi/vim) and search (in Nano: ctrl+w) for date_default_timezone and set it to the right timezone.

    Example of a value for the setting:
    America/Los_Angeles
