The default php.ini doesn't have a TZ set, so will always give that message unless/until you add a TZ. However, to fix this: - check the location of the php.ini that is being referenced, as indicated above (generally /etc/php.ini). - edit that php.ini file to set a correct TZ following the "date.timezone =" entry. - be certain to uncomment that line. - you probably need to restart the apache server to get any change picked up.
