Hi there,

There has been a similar question here:

The two suggestions were:

  • Use 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:

Using your auth token and the body:

{“config”: { “default_time_zone”: “Europe/London” }} <-- Change the timezone as you wish.
  • The second option is to reach out to the DigitalOcean support team and ask them to do this for you.

Hope that this helps!
