The following is part of a longer series about Magento aimed at developers familiar with PHP MVC development. While each article can be read stand alone, each article does build on concepts and code covered in previous articles. If you’re confused, be sure to catch up on the older stuff first.

How To Setup, Configure & Manage Time Zones In Magento

Posted on January 7th, 2012 | Posted by admin

Lately many people asked us questions on how to manage & setup timezone for their Magento store and why Magento uses UTC (coordinated Universal Time). Now, you must be having few other sites running as per your timezone requirements so why your Magento powered store has to rely on UTC? Answer is simple, Magento is built to run on most of the platforms so if you run your store on cloud servers, the server default will be UTC unless specified otherwise. Magento sets script’s time relative to server time which finally gets converted to UTC. So each Magento store (database-wise) is synced to UTC which will automatically help with cross-server synchronization.

A CRON is a daemon which keeps running and gets activated at a said interval (time period). Cron helps store owners to setup up and schedule commands which will run periodically at set time and date. Various Magento services such as “Sending Newsletter “, Cleanup with logs, Cleanup cache, Customer notification etc.  requires a mechanism where store owners can setup and schedule commands to run periodically.

Most of the web hosts have their own set of task scheduler; you can ask and verify the task scheduler from your webhost. While setting a cron-job make sure that minimum time duration is set to run every 15 minutes (not less than this) as  Magento spends around 1 minute to index 1000 products and sets the status to “Success” from “Pending”.
