LXer: How to change timezone on Linux

Published at LXer:

If the default timezone of your Linux system is not correct, you need to correct it to get accurate local time. Note that configuring NTP is not a solution for an incorrect timezone as NTP itself does not handle timezones. NTP handles time data in UTC, and actual local time is calculated by adding the local time zone offset.
