I have an old site I used to look after that is not 'live' but still accessible on the webserver and it is now generating and error to me email everytime someone access the old URL:

Date/time : 27 May 2017, 12:59:14
File: /services/webpages/util/c/c/
Line: 21
Code: 2
Message: strftime(): It is not safe to rely on the system's timezone settings. You are *required* to use the date.timezone setting or the date_default_timezone_set() function. In case you used any of those methods and you are still getting this warning, you most likely misspelled the timezone identifier. We selected the timezone 'UTC' for now, but please set date.timezone to select your timezone.

I can run the checking routine which give the output in the attached image.

Unfortunately, I can't seem to access the management login screen either, I assume due to this error?

SyndeoCMS - Error page

There is a problem with the site, please contact your administrator.

Is there another way I can get to the login page other than via:

Thanks for any help.

There is no other way for login in, what error do you get there?
You can add :


to the file footer3.php to get rid of the warning but it should not influence the working of the site other than the enoying warning message.
