I have just done a new install of WordPress and CiviCRM, it has displayed this warning when looking at the CiviCRM dashboard:
Environment Settings Timestamps reported by MySQL (eg "2016-03-22 14:45") and PHP (eg "2016-03-22 20:45" ) are mismatched.
The link it refers to is this: https://wiki.civicrm.org/confluence/display/CRMDOC/checkMysqlTime
Which I have read but maybe I am missing something.
I ran this command on MySQL "SELECT TIMEDIFF( NOW( ) , UTC_TIMESTAMP );" and it returns -06:00:00
So then in my php.ini I set date.timezone=America/Chicago to match, then as another precaution I went to the WordPress wp-admin dashboard in the settings and set the timezone to UTC-6 and yet the warning is still displaying, does anyone have any ideas?
