Something wrong with date time computation when quiz is limited to once a day

Sounds great, thanks. Since you use server time to set the datetime_taken, then using server time to check for cooldown time makes sense.

This almost does it, with one little twist. Since the server time (which I can't change) is UTC, it does the day computation for UTC, not local time. I can live with this, and just explain when asked that it might be two days instead of one to wait to retake.
I do expect that this would be a common problem for sites using a shared server from a hosting service with a server time that's not local time.

Yes, that's reasonable.

I'm just checking. You have changed the Server timezone in Joomla's Global Configuration settings, haven't you?

Yes, the Website Time Zone in Global Configuration->Server is Los Angeles

It seems that the server ignores the timezone setting.
One last attempt could be to set the timezone in .htaccess:
php_value date.timezone "America/Los_Angeles"

I can't think of anything else we could do in this case.
