Hi all,

My timezone is set to New York and I need to change it over to UK.

How would I change this over?

Log into the server and run this command:

dpkg-reconfigure tzdata

After that, the prompts will be self-explanatory.

the quickest way i think is …

# sudo timedatectl set-timezone Europe/London
# rdate

boom !
