Update Your VPS Timezone

You may find that your virtual server’s default timezone is not the timezone you (or your users) reside in. Updating your timezone is simple:

First, log in to your VPS as the root user via SSH, then run the following command to list all available timezones (there will be many):

# find /usr/share/zoneinfo/

You can use grep to refine the search:

# find /usr/share/zoneinfo/ | grep -i turkey

Once you have selected a timezone, create a symbolic link to /etc/localtime:

# ln -f -s /usr/share/zoneinfo/CST6CDT /etc/localtime

To verify the timezone change, use date:

# date

That’s it! Your new timezone should be set.
