Correct time…

It is always a good practice to maintain the correct time on your Linux server or system and it can have the following advantages: maintain a timely operation of system tasks since most tasks in Linux are controlled by time.
Correct time for logging events and other information on the system and many more.

# timedatectl status

# timedatectl


# timedatectl | grep Time

To view all available timezones, run the command below:
# timedatectl list-timezones

# timedatectl list-timezones | grep Europe/I

# timedatectl set-timezone “Europe/Roma”

# timedatectl set-timezone UTC

For who was wondering, Coordinated Universal Time or UTC is the primary time standard by which the world regulates clocks and time.

To set both date and time:

# timedatectl set-time '2022-09-27 09:24:50'

# timedatectl | grep local

Set your hardware clock to local timezone:

# timedatectl set-local-rtc 1

# timedatectl set-ntp true

# timedatectl set-ntp false
