To check your current timezone, run:
Fri Jan 25 02:12:14 UTC 2020
Above we can see the timezone is UTC (Coordinated Universal Time).
UTC is the default time zone. To avoid timezone confusion and the complexities of adjusting clocks for daylight saving time in accordance with regional custom, it is often recommended that all servers use UTC.
If your site or application requires a different system timezone, start by listing the available options:
timedatectl list-timezones Africa/Abidjan Africa/Accra Africa/Addis_Ababa
Now its time to set your time zone. Mine timezone is Europe/Stockholm
sudo timedatectl set-timezone Europe/Stockholm
Now check if the timezone has been set correctly.
We can see the timezone has changed to CET, which correct for Stockholm.
