Update VPS Timezone – OpenVZ
Your OpenVZ will have the host server’s time settings by default.
But it is possible to configure your VPS to use a custom timezone which you are on or your user is on.
Log in as the root user via ssh and run the following command to list all available timezones:
$ ls /usr/share/zoneinfo/
and note the region where you reside
Once you have selected a timezone, create a symbolic link to /etc/localtime:
$ ln -sf /usr/share/zoneinfo/<region>/<timezone> /etc/localtime
Then use date command to verify the time zone.
