First your system clock should be set to GMT and you should use the correct
time zone to display the correct local time. I expect if you sync the time
on your machine to a NTP-server you'll see you were not running the correct
time in GMT and the correct time zone. You have to start digging into your
OS config I think...

In the etc dir you'll find a directory with all the error-pages. You can
change them anyway you like.

Appreciate your kind reply,
