I am trying to install Silverstripe on a existing server and everything works until I get to the validation and it keeps giving the message "date.timezone option in php.ini must be set correctly." I have tried every valid date setting for west coast America including "America/Los_Angeles", "America/Denver" and "America/Vancouver". None of them work. It is very frustrating because I have no Idea what it wants. I have tried it with double quotes, single quotes, no quotes. Every attempt fails. Any ideas on what to do. I am on php5.6.30

Some additional info. I found that my WAMP install will accept a date.timezone = "UTC" but my Debian Linux version won't accept it or anything else. I also have another Linux box that has the date.timezone commented out and it accepted the install.
