In the container "On this day" on the startpage I see the items from the last day in the first 1 hour of a day.
When I go to my webtrees installation between 00:00 and 00:59, I see the events from the last day, not from the actual day.

I had set the timezone in the settings to UTC and corrected this to Europe/Berlin (which is my real timezone), but no change.

What can be wrong?

Possibly this: github.com/fisharebest/webtrees/issues/865

Your server's database might be set with a different timezone to the server's webserver.

Before we can fix this, we must answer a question.

GEDCOM does not store timezones. So, the "last change" event in a GEDCOM record is just a text string "1 CHAN / 2 DATE 15 JUL 2016 / 3 TIME 07:45:34".

What time zone is this? We have users around the world in different timezones.

If we use the server's timezone, then users may be confused when their edits occur in the past or future.
If we use the user's timezone, then we will not be able to sort changes correctly.

There are two places you can set this. The server, and the user. Which did you set?

Oh... I just set it on server level.

Now I updated it for my user and will try it this night again. Thank you!

This was the solution! Great!
