But the month can be changed with the same command as well.
You do one thing, put the same date and year while changing the month and just change the month according to your need.
One of the examples for changing the date is as follows:

Quote:
# date -s "5 Jul 2012 18:00:00"
So, as shown above in the example, you can just change the month there according to your requirement.

To set the date, you need to be root.

It should be working.

[root@host1]# date
Mon Jul 9 10:59:29 IST 2012
[root@host1]# date --set="5 JUL 2012 13:44:30"
Thu Jul 5 13:44:30 IST 2012
[root@host1]# date
Thu Jul 5 13:44:33 IST 2012
[root@bost1]#
