Timezone problem after datacenter transfer on sourceforge

Hi all!

We, K-Meleon community, need help, once again.

Last days our hoster, sourceforge.net have migrated all the data to new datacenter and now our Phorum 5.2.13 shows the next warning instead any single forum posting:
Quote

Warning: strtotime(): 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 the timezone 'UTC' for now, but please set date.timezone to select your timezone. in /home/project-web/kmeleon/htdocs/phorum-5.2.13/include/format_functions.php on line 263

I wonder is it possible to fix this through Phorum Admin procedures or only editing of php-files would solve the problem? (it seems that our forum admin, who owns access credentials to edit files on server, is unavailable now)

It also shows the same warnings for other files:

You probably won't be able to correct this issue from Phorum. You may be able to have your own php.ini, but this depends on the server setup, which is beyond your control

Below are from other messages on this Forum, I did not do an extensive search.

Besides server time there is
In the php.ini [php.net]


Here is a reference to changes in php.

php 5.4 Backward Incompatible Changes
In the date and time extension, the timezone can no longer be set using the TZ environment variable. Instead you have to specify a timezone using the date.timezone php.ini option or date_default_timezone_set() function. PHP will no longer attempt to guess the timezone, and will instead fall back to "UTC" and issue a E_WARNING.

Thank you, Scott!
We'll try to call our forum creator now.

This seems to be a global SF problem with transfer in progress
