I'm running an auction on a hosted server and all time values displayed are based on the server clock and time zone.
Is there a way to configure a time zone that will override the server's time zone?
Even a partial solution that only modifies the displayed values will do.

For example, if the server is at GMT-5 and my time zone is GMT+1, a closing time of 5:00am should display 11:00am in the browser.

You can change the timezone for your entire application by adding some code to the beginning of your index.php file.

If you're using PHP 5 you can use the date_default_timezone_set() function:

Otherwise you can use putenv:

A list of supported timezones.

There are other ways to override the display of fields in dataface, but I would try one of these methods first.

I set the default timezone to Asia/Jakarta but on the web display as WIT (Waktu Indonesia Timur/Eastern Indonesia)

@jimmywie WIT: Western Indonesian Time not "Waktu Indonesia Timur", thus you dont have to fix anything co'z its the correct one (bahasa: Waktu Indonesia Barat)
