Wooohoo! Just a short note in case someone gets into a similar
situation and will find this thread:

In order to use "pecl", I had to install PEAR and php-devel packages.
On Fedora 13 it's just a:

yum install php-pear php-devel

Then I ran a command:

pecl install timezonedb

It downloaded and installed the latest version of timezonedb for me.
I just had to edit /etc/php.ini to add a line:


to "Dynamic Extensions" section (this seem to be important!).
And I also put a proper timezone (it's Moscow in my case):

date.timezone = Europe/Moscow

After restarting Apache, I get proper time in MythWeb again!

Mike, thanks a lot for your support!!!

Best regards,
