Comment (by Otto42):

 Also, this:
 echo current_time('mysql');
 echo date('Y-d-m H:i:s', current_time('timestamp'));

 // will return
 // 2007-08-28 21:58:05 (GMT -3: correct)
 // 2007-28-08 18:58:05 (GMT -6!)

 Shows that the time on your server is set wrong. current_time('mysql')
 should have given you the UTC/GMT time, not GMT-3. Your "correct" mark is
 actually incorrect.

 Linux systems, to pick a normal unix system, should always have their
 internal clocks set to UTC/GMT. The timezone is dealt with in the
 operating system, the computer clock is running on UTC/GMT.
