Date And Time


Recommended Posts

Hi !

I share with you a php script to set the correct date and time for the pineapple. It acts as a ntp client but without installing one such as ntpclient, etc.

It gets UTC time, so you will have to change the following parameter in the code:

// time adjustment
$time_adjustment = 7200;

Download

EDIT

Another fix is proposed by Prox here

in /etc/config/system add the lines:

config 'timeserver'

list 'server' '0.openwrt.pool.ntp.org'

list 'server' '1.openwrt.pool.ntp.org'

list 'server' '2.openwrt.pool.ntp.org'

list 'server' '3.openwrt.pool.ntp.org'

You may also need/want to change line 2 to your local timezone.

option 'timezone' 'UTC'

(Note: timezones are listed here)

Add the command 'date -k' to /etc/rc.local

What do you mean:

// time adjustment

$time_adjustment = 7200;

is that seconds? minutes? Could you be a bit clearer how this works? When I run it, it shows PDT time which is off by more than two hours from the time in the East Coast.

thank you.

It's minutes. Eastern would be -3000, actually I guess it would be -2400 right now. Stupid daylight savings time....
