I've been noticing these messages lately on some of my Drupal 6 sites. These popped up any time I saved any content.

warning: strtotime(): It is not safe to rely on the system's timezone settings. You are *required* to use the date.timezone setting or the date_default_timezone_set() function. In case you used any of those methods and you are still getting this warning, you most likely misspelled the timezone identifier. We selected 'America/Chicago' for 'CDT/-5.0/DST' instead in /var/www/polycotassociates.com/modules/node/node.module on line 814.

Recently I suspected I had a problem in my mysql databases on my webserver, so I ran the following command:

mysqlcheck -u root -p'put-your-database-password-here' --all-databases

I got a neat list of databases and tables and messages saying some tables are OK and some not. Notice that I cleverly replaced my database root password with the phrase put-your-database-password-here, so you should replace that with your password if you want to try this.  BTW it seems you can ignore the warnings about client using or not closing tables.
