Set your Server Time Zone

Steps:

  • Firstly, one needs to select the appropriate time zone from the menu.

In this case we would recommend to set one’s server’s time zone to Universal Time, Coordinated (UTC). This will allow the servers to interact concurrently with one another and help prevent Daylight Savings Time-related errors on one’s system that runs in different timezones.

  • Next, one can click on Change TimeZone.

In this case, one can change the time zone via server’s GUI tools, or via the command line interface in the /etc/localtime file. One must restart the cpsrvd daemon for the system to reflect the change in the cPanel and WHM interfaces . For doing this, one can run the following command as the root  user:

/usr/local/cpanel/scripts/restartsrv_cpsrvd

Synchronize your Sever Time with the Time Server

One can synchronize one’s server to the network’s time server. This can be useful if one’s server’s time is incorrect.

In order to synchronize one’s server’s time with the network time server, one can click on Sync Time with Time Server.

Conclusion

This feature works in helping the user with the server time as outlined in the review.
