The Timestamp on the threads and posts is haywire !!

I don;t know, what is happening..
My server is set to my timezone, but yet it shows wrong times always..
the time on the thread posts and replies is always wrong, I asked my users and staff to make sure that they are in the same timezone as the server is, they all checked and set it the same ( just to be sure ) but the problem persists !!

What to do?
this is creating problems for me to diagnose the errors and other things !!

Yep. The purpose of that code is to show you the date and time so you can know if they are correct. You can remove the code when you are done looking.

If the date and time is wrong for your timezone then you need to ask your host or server admin to fix the server clock.

in cpanel i don't think so...or i have never used it... in Whm you would be looking for ' server time ', if you don't have whm and don't have root access you need to ask you host to take care of this for you (the server time issue)

My server admin says that his server has GMT as its standard time clock and that I should also set my forums time as the same then me and my users will not face the problem as they would have set the local time setting for themselves.
I don't think so. You need to ask your host or server admin to fix the clock.
Shared hosting :D but very powerful and scalable !!
Are you on shared hosting or do you have your own server?
Hmmmm !! so youare on Windows hosting environment ??
