Trying to set PHP timezone from default UTC to America/Toronto ...

https://php.tutorials24x7.com/blog/set-same-timezone-in-php-mysql-and-apache

/etc/php/7.2/apache2/php.ini [Date] date.timezone = America/Toronto (also tried 'America/Toronto' and "America/Toronto"), restarted apache, did not appear to take when checked in phpinfo.php.

Can't find any *working* syntax examples for this.

Well, like all things computer, it's stupidly complicated unless you already know the answer. Then it's perfectly obvious! (I'm guessing).

I'm trying to apply our local time zone to a php/mysql file server timestamps because strangely, not all servers are located in 'UTC'. Who knew?

Anyhoo, I messed around with setting the mysql time zone to 'America/Toronto' in the cli, which appears to have worked, but this isn't reflected in time stamps of newly-uploaded files.

Also unclear if this will survive a restart, who in their right mind would want that?

Not something like another date.timezone entry somewhere later in php.ini?

I very much recommend leaving all servers set to UTC always everywhere, and handling timezones when datetimes are output.

Your cautionary note has me thinking my mtime-based incremental backups could be screwed up over this, if I actually got it working. Feature!
