I updated my forum to 3.0.5 but now the tims is 1 hour, 53 minutes too fast. Also when I reply to a topic, it doesn't go to the top of the forum (this may be related to the time problem). Is this a known problem? Is there a fix?

I suggest having your host check the server time. It's off quite a lot.

Thanks, yes I contacted my host. I looked around a bit and saw that servertime is gmt timezone while the forum uses umt timezone.
In case my host can't or don't want to update servertime to umt, is there a way to change to gmt by changing some things in the files?

umt timezone is not an option for default in phpBB, how did you set for UMT? Your board states it is using UTC for the default.

Heheh, yes sorry, I meant UTC time. Well, my host is now working on my request, so let's see how that goes first.
