Crontab Time Differs From Server Time Through Date


I currently have a CentOS Server,a nd eveyrthing is well, except that contab seems ot be running on a different time, to the time that appears when the command "date" is executed. How can i sync these two times together, as it's quite annoying to have to first figure out the time difference then accunt for it everytime i want to do a crontab entry.


**************** SOLVED ********************

nvm, figured out the solution myself, after restarting crond it's now working on the same time.

Okay, but do you have an inkling what caused that discrepancy in the first place and how did you arrive at your solution?
