I just did a fresh install of AMP and the first php app I installed gave me the following error.
Warning: date() [function.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 ‘UTC’ for ‘UTC/0.0/no DST’
It turned out to be a quick fix.
First go to this page and find the syntax for your timezone.
Once you have this edit your php.ini file and add the following to it
(If you are using a distro ini search for date to find the example)
date.timezone = “America/New_York”
Exchange the proper timezone for your region
