possible to use when server and website are in different time zones? (2 posts)

    Hi, just read about your plugin and decided to give it a go as it sounds very promising.

    The time-factor is I think the problem for me as I am located in GMT+8, but the servers where I host my website on are located in GMT-4 (or 5).

    Am I correct to assume that this type of combination will not work?

    As long as your server and your phone is setup to agree on what time it is this should not be a problem.

    But inaccurate set time on the server or your phone would cause the plugin to fail logging you in.
    The server should sync it's time with a NTP server, your phone can get it's time from your carrier, or at least my Android phone can. Not sure how time settings work on an iPhone or Blackberry.

    Best regards
