I fixed this at the bottom of my post!

Default Time Offset (Hours): 1
Unadjusted Server Time: 10th Apr 2014 12:15pm (Wrong its 10th Apr 2014 13:15pm)
Version : 7.5.6p2

This has never been an issue before so it could down to a php upgrade (January time) and only now coming to light.
But how / or why is the strange part.

The Problems
1. Unadjusted Server Time, I have had to +1 as its not reading back to me the correct Unadjusted server time.
2. Post Island are Time stamping +1 hr from the posting time. (Or +2 hrs from unadjusted server time).

Available Time Formats:
jS M Y | g:ia
m/d/y | h:i A

Show Relative Timestamps: Ticked

Its just strange how the post and the topic reply island is +1 hr out ?

Side note : Emails and out going services all have the correct server time.

I was going to post this the other day but it seemed to have corrected its self.
But this morning it was doing it again ??
And now to confuse the issue a user has posted 13:36 BST and the post island now says Posted 8mins ago (Which is correct) it matches the post time stamp.

I needed to update the php.ini file to my time Local Time zone zone "Europe/London" Previously UTC.
That brought the Unadjusted Server Time back to expected and no off set was needed.

But the experience may highlight how the Topic Islands are build and stamped from different sources ?

Self appraisal moment coming - Well done mark you fixed it lol

BOOM !! Version v7.6.1.1

I believe that the issue is that in newer php versions they require you set a default timestamp now whereas previously they did not, so if it's not set it "attempts" to ascertain the correct timezone for you.
