You can easily set the time zone of your database session by using an SQL command in phpMyAdmin. Just open your database using phpMyAdmin and go to the SQL section:
Once there, insert the following command:
SET time_zone = '+hh:00';
Replacing +hh with the UTC timezone. For example, UTC-03:00 would be:
SET time_zone = '-03:00';
Next, click on the Go button to apply the changes:
That's it! You have successfully changed the time zone for the current MySQL session on your database.
