How do I set the timezone on my system?

The timezone on by system is incorrect.

If the system is not in the correct time zone, run the following commands from the command line to change the setting:

  • # sudo su -
  • # cd /etc
  • # rm localtime
  • # ls /usr/share/zoneinfo/US/
    • This command will list all the time zones you can pick. Select the one that fits your region.
  • # cd /etc
  • # ln -s /usr/share/zoneinfo/US/[your_timezone] localtime
    • where [your_timezone] is the time zone you picked from the previous step
  • Verify that the time zone changed by issuing “date”
