Change Timezone

The timezone of the server should match the timezone for it’s physical location. These instructions will modify the timezone settings of the underlying operating system. If these instructions are followed after ViciDial has been installed then you will still need to modify the GMT Offset of the server in the admin interface. This can be found under the Admin –> Servers section of ViciDial.
