Migration and time zones


#1

I’ve just noticed that all the sites I have migrated from WP to CP now have the time zone reset to UTC +0. I have to go in and change them all to my zone.

Is this expected behaviour? It would be more useful if it could keep the current set time zone.


#2

My sites stayed on the correct time zone.


#3

I will have to do some testing, but I don’t think I have seen this either.

Will do some testing this weekend to see :slight_smile:


#4

I just checked through all the sites I migrated over Wade. Of the 15 there were 12 that reverted back to UTC +0 and 3 that kept their correct time zone. So it’s a weird thing that may be something at my end… (no idea what!). I can’t see anything I’ve done differently in those three.


#5

I just ran a test on 4.9.9 and 5.0.3 and both times the timezones didn’t revert back to UTC +0.

What version of WP were you migrating from?


#6

Hmm… I think from memory some were 5.0.1 and some were 5.0.2. Maybe one or two were 5.0.3? Not much help sorry. I expect it is just something localised. But thanks for checking.


#7

No worries, happy to at least test it and make sure it isn’t a bug :slight_smile:
