After performing the steps to upgrade our message board from 7.5.7 to 7.5.8, when I run install/upgrade.php I get the following error

Fatal error: Call to undefined function: date_default_timezone_set() in /var/www/html/forum/libs/ubbthreads.inc.php on line 33

Any suggestions on how to proceed?

I used the latest version of ubb in the member area.

What version of PHP do you have?
Most issues are due to a extremely old php version that does not support that function.
google:
Call to undefined function: date_default_timezone_set

Note to Brooks!!!
Since v7.5.8 was released to support newer versions of PHP possibly the requirements page that states
Minimum version of php 4.3+ is not correct anymore?

I upgraded to PHP version 5.3.8 and the upgrade was successful. Thank you for the help.

Note that I would have missed the entire minimum php version required notice. I just assumed that the jump from .7 to .8 was minor and did not require an update of PHP on our server.

Maybe adding a check at the start of the unpdate script of the installed PHP version would help.

Thanks again,
Mike
