Hey folks,

I'm using v 1.6.5 with EE 2.10.2. I'm running on Amazon's AWS with PHP 5.4.40. I'm also using FL's master config, and when I have debugging turned on, I get the following warning about timezone related information:

A PHP Error was encountered
Severity: Warning
Message: 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.
Filename: models/ep_auth.php
Line Number: 99

    This isn't something we encountered before and sounds like an environmental issue. Did a quick Google and found this:

    Are you able to update your PHP INI file?
