How to set the timezone for PHP via cPanel

Should you discover that the time showing incorrectly in scripts, applications, or services on your server, you may find that resetting the timezone resolves the issue. Traditionally, the timezone is set in the php.ini configuration file. However, we do not allow direct changes to php.ini on HostPapa servers. PHP configuration changes can be made using My cPanel.

Log in to your HostPapa Dashboard and select My cPanel from the top navigation menu. Scroll down to the Software section and click Select PHP Version.


Now click Switch to PHP Options.

PHP Options

Click the value next to date.timezone to edit the timezone setting. You can view a full list of alternative timezones from around the world at this PHP support page:

Click Apply to save your setting.
