Server Timezone

Solution The server timezone is displayed as a reference for users, so they know what timezone the server is running. This option cannot be changed. All the date/time info are stored in the database using the server timezone.

Then, when we display data/stats/reports/trends, we adjust the database times to match the userís timezone. Thatís why we have the drop-down control where users will select the appropriate timezone for their location.

If the server is on GMT-6 and the user is on GMT-4, this means that a correction of +2 hours must be added to each date/time retrieved from the database.

If a click is registered at 3 PM server time, the application will display 5 PM as the time for the click.

The time was adjusted by adding 2 hours.

That is how it works with all the date/times in the application.
