Error with footer.php date object ??

Warning: date(): 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.

No idea what they mean should i use another method ?

You can try default date function and it work just fine even in our localhost.

<?php echo date("Y");?>

I don't have enough context to provide an answer. I have the following working.

        <p>&copy; <?php bloginfo('name'); echo ' '; echo date('Y'); ?></p>


Mmmh i think this is wrong :-(

<?php date_default_timezone_set('UTC');  echo date('jS \of F Y h:i:s A'); ?>


The date(); method seems to be not allowed without "default", but thanks.
