Set Time in Ubuntu

You should set time in Ubuntu server according to your local timezone to track logs easily.


1. To set time in Ubuntu, we will enter the visual wizard for the timezone. As we mentioned earlier, to paste commands (text) on PuTTY SSH client or Linux terminal, just copy the command (Ctrl+V). Then, click a (single right click) anywhere on the PuTTY’s black screen (console). The text will be pasted starting from the position of the green cursor. We used the command: clear (or Ctrl+L), to clear everything on the console.
