Current system time on PHP Webpage


Hi Folks,
I want to display the current system (linux) time
in the webpage using PHP code
I have tried numerous codes had a mismatched time.
Finally I have tried the code :
<?php

$date = date('l dS \of F Y h:i:s A');

echo "$date";

?>

Output:
Friday 04th of June 2010 07:58:53 AM

where as the actual system time is :
Friday 04th of June 2010 08:58:53 PM

The system local time is Japan/Tokyo.
Can anyone help me with the resolution to this issue
on priority.

Does Japan use daylight saving time?

If so, you can check whether this is set (in)correctly with:

Code:
echo(date('I'));
1 = daylight saving, 0 = no daylight saving.

Also, the following will allow you to check whether php is picking up timezone data correctly:

Code:
echo(date('e'));
