Quick Tip: Setting time zone on Ubuntu Hardy

Posted by Curtis Miller Curtis Miller

I've been pretty enamored with SliceHost recently. They make it very easy to setup a slice, configure it and get your product deployed quickly (I'm down to 30 min). I hadn't noticed until just recently that I've never set a time zone on any slice I've configured. So, here's how you do it, simple and easy.

  1. SSH into your slice
  2. Run this command: sudo dpkg-reconfigure tzdata
  3. Select your geographic area and location

That's it, hope it helps!

If you want your own slice, consider using my Slicehost referral link. Thanks!
