MySQL Time Different to Server
Posted by: Max Hugen

In MySQL 5.6.17, I have discovered that timestamp fields have times that are incorrect by 3 hours - looks like a Time Zone issue.

The MySQL function Now() returns, for example: 2014-07-13 23:47:07

However, the server shows the time as: 2014-07-13 20:47:07

After some Googling, I ran SELECT @@global.time_zone, @@session.time_zone; and both values were 'SYSTEM' as I had expected.

MySQL is clearly NOT using the server's system date/time however.

NOTE: when this server was originally set up, the Time Zone was incorrect (US Eastern Time), and some time later (after setting up MySQL), I corrected it to US Pacific Time. A 3 hour difference.

Can anyone suggest a way to fix this pls?
