Setting Time Zone

  1. Logged in as root, check which timezone your machine is currently using by executing `date`. You'll see something like Mon 17 Jan 2005 12:15:08 PM PST, PST in this case is the current timezone.
  2. Change to the directory /usr/share/zoneinfo here you will find a list of time zone regions. Choose the most appropriate region, if you live in Canada or the US this directory is the "America" directory.
  3. Create a symbolic link from the appropiate timezone to /etc/localtime. Example     ln -sf /usr/share/zoneinfo/Europe/Amsterdam /etc/localtime
  4. Set the ZONE entry in the file /etc/sysconfig/clock file (e.g. "America/Los_Angeles")
  5. Set the hardware clock by executing:     /sbin/hwclock --systohc
