Timezone Error

If you receive the following timezone settings error when trying to migrate your database for the first time:

PHP Error[2]: date(): It is not safe to rely on the system's timezone settings. You are *required* to use the date.timezone setting or the date_default_timezone_set() function. In case you used any of those methods and you are still getting this warning, you most likely misspelled the timezone identifier. We selected the timezone 'UTC' for now, but please set date.timezone to select your timezone.

I’ve found that the most effective fix in your local development environment is to add the date_default_timezone_set line to your /app/protected/yiic.php file:

< ?php

// change the following paths if necessary
$yiic=dirname(__FILE__).'/../../framework/yiic.php';
$config=dirname(__FILE__).'/config/console.php';
date_default_timezone_set("America/Los_Angeles");
require_once($yiic);
