My store is from Chile

I'll set timezone America/Santiago from the backend. When I place the order, it gets the wrong time. I created one script and write below code.

  <?php require 'app/Mage.php';
    echo Mage::getModel('core/date')->gmtDate('Y-m-d H:i:s');

Tt returns 2018-09-07 11:30:43 but the current time in Chile is 2018-09-07 10:30:43 Can anyone have a solution for this?

Try to use this code :

$date = new DateTime();
$date->setTimezone(new DateTimezone('America/Santiago'));
echo $date->format('Y-m-d H:i:s');
  • when order is place it take wrong time – Jigs Parmar Sep 7 '18 at 5:57
  • so i want to set tizone globally and when i use Mage::getModel('core/date')->gmtDate('Y-m-d H:i:s') than it return right time – Jigs Parmar Sep 7 '18 at 5:57
