Put a simple php page on your/the server (where zoneminder is
running) with the "phpinfo()" function, and then look at the timezone
information in the "date" section of the output. 

If it isn't showing the correct value, check the location of the
php.ini that is being used in the "Loaded Configuration File" value
toward the top of that output.

By default, php doesn't use the system's TZ,
