The time would go by your server time. An easy workaround for this is to manually set the timezone by using date_default_timezone_set before the date() or time() functions are called.

If I am in Melbourne, Australia so I have something like this:
 

date_default_timezone_set('Australia/Melbourne');

Or another example is if I am in LA - US:
 

date_default_timezone_set('America/Los_Angeles');

You can also see what timezone the server is currently in via:
 

Date_default_timezone_
get();

So something like:
 

$timezone = date_default_timezone_get(); 
echo "The current server timezone is: " . $timezone;
So the short answer for your question would be:
// Change the line below to your timezone! date_default_timezone_set('Australia/Melbourne'); $date = date('m/d/Y h:i:s a', time());

Then all the times would be to the timezone you just set. Hope this answers your question.
