Cold Fusion Time Zone Changes
Posted by Joe Rebis (Import) on 16 March 2007 09:31 PM
It has come to our attention that there is an issue with ColdFusion reporting the incorrect time due to the new time zone changes this year. This time is off by 1 hour. Only ColdFusion is affected.|
**There is a "fix" for the time zone problem and we will be installing it this evening (March 16th) after 6:00pm. It WILL require a restart of several of our servers which generally only takes less than 5 minutes.**
Users who have ColdFusion installed on their own dedicated servers should read the following TechNote at Adobe and apply the fix as necessary. Technically, this is not your usual ColdFusion Hotfix or Updater. For whatever reason, this fix does not appear in be the typical hotfixes or updaters. You can optionally code around this problem if you prefer.
To test to see if your ColdFusion server should have this fix, run the following code in a test CFM page:
It should show the correct PST time.
Thank you for your understanding.
