Howto set timezone in php.ini with Plesk

Plesk is one of the most used web administration system , but like anyone else it’s not so easy to understand how it works. Some CMS or softwares need a properly configured timezone in php to work. To set timezone in PHP you need to write some code into parsed php.ini. But which one php.ini file is parsed ?

The phpinfo() function

Answer to this question is a line of code long: just execute a php file into your system simply declaring phpinfo() function. Example:

  • Create a test.php file
  • Write into :
  • Execute http://mydomain/test.php
  • Look inside the field “Loaded Configuration File”


In Plesk environment the default file is in /var/www/vhosts/mydomain/etc/php.ini . This is valid also for subdomain , so we have :

  • for domain test.com : /var/www/vhosts/test.com/etc/php.ini
  • for subdomain sub.test.com : /var/www/vhosts/sub.test.com/etc/php.ini
Now open with an editor the php.ini file ( nano editor could be a good choice ) and write :
date.timezone = “US/Central”
Save and done! You don’t need to restart web server.
To see allowed timezones visit the official PHP page.
