What is the “ Server Time” Interface Responsible for in cPanel ?
Posted by Allura on 25 11 2019.
Setting and synchronizing the server’s time with the network’s time server is made possible by the Server Time feature.
(WHM >> Home >> Server Configuration >> Server Time)
The server must be set to the correct time for the cPanel and WHM license to work correctly.
Steps to set the server’s time zone :
- The appropriate time zone from the menu must be selected.
- It is recommended to set the server’s time zone to Universal Time. That way, servers in different timezones can interact concurrently with each other and stop Daylight Savings Time-related errors on the system.
- Next step is to select the Change Time Zone
- The time zone can be changed via the server’s GUI tools. But to display the change in the system in the cPanel and WHM interfaces, the cpsrvd daemon must be restarted.
This is the necessary command that needs to be run as the root user.
If the server time is incorrect, then it is possible to synchronize the server to the network’s time server.
Click on Sync Time with Time Server to initiate the synchronization process.
