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.
