Setting the Timezone on my server

When I scheduled my last post on December 14th to be published at 6pm that night I noticed that the schedule time was a bit … off:

I realized that the server times as still set to GMT and that I had missed the step in the Linode Getting Started guide to Set the Timezone.

No problem, just found the Guide, went to this section and ran the following command:

sudo dpkg-reconfigure tzdata

I then selected my country (US) and my time zone (Pacific-Ocean) and now the server has the right timezone.
