Hello @johanjohanssonsquid

I believed this was answered in this question

https://www.digitalocean.com/community/questions/can-i-change-timezone-in-the-do-managed-mysql-database

The easiest way to do this now is via the DigitalOcean API.

First, use a GET request to get a list of your databases, and take the ID of the database you’re looking to change the settings for.

Then, use this API call: https://docs.digitalocean.com/reference/api/api-reference/#operation/databases_patch_config

Using your auth token and the body:

  1. {“config”: { “default_time_zone”: “Europe/London” }}

Change the timezone as you wish.

This should set the timezone for your server
