Hosting timezone differs of clients timezone

Hi,

I have a website in production wich uses a lot of date and time
calculations to show specific information.

The timezone of my hosting service (Dreamhost) is PDT, and the timezone
of my potential clients is CEST. There are 9 hours of difference between
them.

Is there an environment variable that I could adjust in my rails
application, so all date/time values be set to CEST timezone?

Thanks.

Set the TZ environment variable in your config/environment.rb file.
E.g.:

ENV[‘TZ’] = ‘Europe/Madrid’

The allowed values for TZ can be found by looking in the
/usr/share/zoneinfo directory.

Philip,

It worked like a charm. Thanks a lot!
