How to Set the Server Time Zone in WHM?

We deliver Linux VPS with default Timezone i.e. MST – Mountain Standard Time. You may need to change default timezone with your home timezone. It’s pretty easy when you choose WHM control panel to be installed on your server. This article will explain you steps to change the timezone of your server via WHM. Be noted that you will need root access to change the timezone.

    In the same screen, you would see current time displayed in the current time box. If you notice your server time is out of sync you can resynchronize it by clicking Sync Time with Time Server button. This will synchronize your server's time with the correct time of the selected timezone.
