On Platform.sh, there are several timezones you might want to keep in mind. All timezones default to UTC time. You can customize some of them, but in most cases, it’s best if you leave them in UTC and store user data with an associated timezone instead.
The different timezones on Platform.sh are the following:
|The timezone for all Platform.sh containers (UTC).
|App runtime timezone
|Set an app runtime timezone if you want your app runtime to use a specific timezone instead of the container timezone.
The app runtime timezone only affects your app itself.
|Set a cron timezone if you want your crons to run in a specific timezone instead of the app runtime timezone (or instead of the container timezone if no app runtime timezone is set on your project).
The cron timezone only affects your cron jobs.
|The timezone for all Platform.sh logs (UTC).
Each Platform.sh project also has a project timezone that only affects automated backups. By default, the project timezone is based on the region where your project is hosted. You can change it from the Console at any time.
How you can set an app runtime timezone depends on your actual app runtime:
You can set a specific timezone for your crons so they don’t run in your app runtime timezone (or container timezone if no app runtime timezone is set on your project).
To do so, set the
timezone top-level property in your app configuration.
