    "UTC +8 is 2009-05-17 5:53:45 "

    No it isn't! I live in Singapore (GMT+8) and the time is 12:56pm! Not 5:53!

    What happened???

    When logged in, go to "Settings -> General" and make sure you have the correct offset in the Timezone field.

    Hi,

    You can set the timing to your desired settings from wordpress admin ares -> settings -> general settings -> Timezone area.

    Thanks,

    Shane G.

    Yup I set it to UTC+8 which is my time zone, and it says "UTC +8 is 2009-05-18 6:01:37 " which is incorrect!

    As of now, my time is Sunday 11:47pm and UTC+8 should be Monday, 2:47pm

    @kmessinger yours is correct, but mine is wrong. Mine says:

    UTC time is 2009-05-18 0:18:34 UTC +8 is 2009-05-18 8:18:34

    is the clock set to the current time correctly on your server?

    How do you check the server's time?

    Anyway if I fixed it later on will the time for the past posts change as well?

    There's certainly no guarantee that your web host has their servers set to your timezone :-) Just adjust the offset until you get the time that you want.

    But what if even UTC+14 (maximum) is still 2 hours slower than my time? :O

    Okay I contacted my hosting provider already. Anyway if they corrected the problem already, will the time of my posts change? I have the loop set to show the time of posting :)
