Hi, what are you looking for?


How to change Ubuntu's time zone via Terminal?

Today I will be writing a very simple article, in order to help developers and on-call enthusiasts. Cloud Computing, or “Cloud Computing” can sometimes generate curious questions: once you decide to allocate an instance (“server”) in another country, normally, by default, you may be dealing with a different time zone than which is located, causing authentication problems, times, displaying correct dates and scheduling operations. But calm down! Know that you can set the time zone for any country on our planet in just a few seconds.

How do I change the server's time zone to that of your region? Easy, just apply the command:

dpkg-reconfigure tzdata

In sequence, you can choose the correct time zone, as desired. Recalling that for Brazil, the indicated option is America / São Paulo. Taking advantage of the “hook”, if you need a Cloud Computing platform that meets your demands, whether they be B2B or B2C, you can count on my startup's platform, the Blenner OS.
