In the beginning I edited those values in php.ini.
Got tired of having to remake the changes in php.ini, whenever php-updates 
were installed, so eventually began setting the needed values directly in the 

Dates however are a different thing. I really always want to see and use 
ISO-dates and times regardless of it's OC or whatever - so I edit the php.ini 
in that case.
