Changing VPS Timezone
One of many things that you probably do when managing a VPS is setting up date and time to match your local date and time. Here’s a quick guide to change your VPS’ timezone.
You can find your own timezone at
/usr/share/zoneinfo/ and copy it to
/etc/localtime. Here’s the magic spell:
[server]# cp /usr/share/zoneinfo/Asia/Jakarta /etc/localtime
Of course you have to change that
Asia/Jakarta thing into your own timezone.
date command output before I change its timezone:
[server]# date Wed Apr 4 16:34:20 EDT 2012
And this is after:
[server]# date Thu Apr 5 03:36:05 WIT 2012
