please help me out of this issue

How to&Answers:

In the case of shared hosting you would need to contact support guys or go for a live chat and they can change the default time zone for you.

You can use date_default_timezone_set() which sets a default timezone.

Please give a look here


convert all your times to UTC on server side and just work with UTC instead


What you can do is :

Store your date time in DB in UTC, and while showing You can show Date time By getting current timezone of India.

// create a $dt object with the UTC timezone
$dt = new DateTime('2016-12-12 12:12:12', new DateTimeZone('UTC'));

// change the timezone of the object without changing it's time
$dt->setTimezone(new DateTimeZone('Asia/Kolkata'));

// format the datetime
$dt->format('Y-m-d H:i:s T');
