Strange dates


#1

Hello,

I was wondering if anybody had ever experienced the dates displayed by
the RT web interface as being all equal to Wed Dec 31 1969 16:00 ?

I think this is the date from which Unix counts its seconds or something
like that…

Any ideas?

Thanks,
Brendan

Yes. You’ll get this result if you pass zero (or a low number) to a
date function that expects unix time in seconds.

Sometimes this can be caused by a bad time-of-day chip
on your computer, or by a date field in a database being
null.

I’m not sure what the exact problem is in rt, it could be
entirely installation specific.

Is the date set properly on your machine?
