Hi,

I am getting the wrong time reported in the wb pages served up by FreePBX. I am a complete Linux noobie, so everything to do with Linux for me is a struggle. I've just battled through figuring out how to secure the box by reseting various passwords, but simply change the timezone of the box is defeating me! Can anyone help me out with this?

I think it is a time zone problem because when I run the Date command, it is reporting the time as Eastern Standard Time.

Thanks
Aaron

This site has a wealth of information, including how to change the timezone.

Sorry for the probably dumb questions, for something relatively minor and simple, but...

That website is geared up for Asterisk@Home not Trixbox. I clicked on the link from there for Trixbox Without Tears, but then it doesn't have any information on changing time zone.

Back in the AAH pages, their instructions for changing timezone is to run the config command. I have tried that in my earlier attempts, but it said that I didn't have all of the modules necessary to complete and it was going to download about 30MB of new "stuff" (the technical description Laughing). I got scared off by this, and thought there has to be an easier way to just change one thing.

So, are you really telling me that the config option is the only way? No simple little command-line instruction I can type to change it? Should I proceed with downloading everything config wants to with confidence its not going to break things??

I'm on Trixbox CE 2.6.0.0

Thanks
Aaron

Oops. Dumb Me. I thought I was at the Trixbox Without Tears tutorial. It's a comprehensive guide, unfortunately the server it is sitting on seems to be down at the moment. It may be mirrored somewhere though,

Sorry, still none the wiser. As I said, Trixbox Without Tears doesn't tell me how to change the time zone. It only explains how you set the time zone during the install (bit late for me now).

BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHHAHHHAAHHAHAHA-no

Appreciate the humour, but is that a no - don't download it, or no - beware it could break things?

Why is Linux so damn hard sometimes with the simple things!? Have I really been that spoiled by Windows? Undecided

Cheers
Aaron

Haven't tried it - but this looks promising as a set of ordinary command line actions...

Fantastic! This worked a charm. Typed in about 8 commands (seven too many in my opinion Laughing) and my timezone is now changed! And no having to download 30MB of "crap" LOL

Thanks
