Magento Provides the Web Services API Features to allow other systems to communicate with the magento store.
If you are new to magento webservices please visit the official site links

  • Web Services Information
  • Magento Core API

While there are methods available to fetch product from outside magento.
But there is no example given on the official site on how to use the method catalog.product_list with Filters.

How To Setup, Configure & Manage Time Zones In Magento

Posted on January 26th, 2012 | Posted by admin

Lately many people asked us questions on how to manage & setup timezone for their Magento store and why Magento uses UTC (coordinated Universal Time). Now, you must be having few other sites running as per your timezone requirements so why your Magento powered store has to rely on UTC? Answer is simple, Magento is built to run on most of the platforms so if you run your store on cloud servers, the server default will be UTC unless specified otherwise. Magento sets script’s time relative to server time which finally gets converted to UTC. So each Magento store (database-wise) is synced to UTC which will automatically help with cross-server synchronization.
