How to Change VPS Timezone/Date

This is a simple process that only takes 3 lines of code via console.

rm -rf /etc/localtime 2>/dev/null

unlink /etc/localtime 2>/dev/null

ln -s /usr/share/zoneinfo/EST /etc/localtime


This example is for EST. Replace "EST" with your timezone. You can look in "/usr/share/zoneinfo" to find the timezone that you would like to use.
