      • remove this file in your site if present: dataroot/temp/olson.txt
      • remove this file in your site if present: dataroot/temp/timezone.txt
      • disable network access, so http://download.moodle.org/timezone/ cannot be accesed
      • go to Admin -> Location -> Update timezones
      • press the continue button, so the local lib/timezone.txt will be loaded
      • TEST: With debugging enabled, you should get one message like "cURL request for "http://download.moodle.org/timezone/" failed...". Perfect, that means you disabled network access ok.
      • TEST: ignoring the previous warning, the load ends without any PHP notice/warning/error.
      • TEST: The page shows this info: "2296 entries imported from YOUR_MOODLE_BASEDIR/lib/timezone.txt". 2296 is the important bit. And also that the load has happened from that directory.
      • TEST: Run the phpunit tests, paying attention to any testmoodlelib.php result. Process should end with "xxx passes, 0 fails and 0 exceptions." (or, alternatively, if there are some tests failing, none of them are related to testmoodlelib.php and date/time functions).
      • POST-TEST (optional, must work if all the prev tests have worked): after rolling upstream (24h later at least), with network access enabled, load the timezones again, it should show the same number of timezones (2296) but loaded from http://download.moodle.org/timezone/

    Description

      Last update was done 5 months ago (to tzdata2014b database, see MDL-45286). Going to update to tzdata2014h.tar.gz

      Source: http://www.iana.org/time-zones

      Instructions:

      The olson.txt to be imported is the concatenation, in one unique file, of these olson files (in this exact order):

      africa, antarctica, asia, australasia, europe, northamerica and southamerica

      1) Put the olson.txt file into dataroot/temp/olson.txt
      2) Go to Admin -> Location -> Update timezones and confirm
      3) Data will be loaded, replacing existing one
      4) Generate CSV file from phpMyAdmin (commas as field separators, non-quoted values, unix line feeds and first line as field names)
      5) Put it into /lib/timezone.txt
      6) Commit

      Note1: Current timezone.txt format is compatible only with Moodle 1.8 and upwards.
      Note2: We'll be spreading this change to all currently supported versions (26, 27 and master).

      Ciao
