If you want to change the timezone on your linux server then just run the below commands from shell as a root user:

[email protected][#] date

Wed jan 11 20:30:29 EST 2010
In this example we are changing the timezone from EST to GMT.

[email protected][#] ln -sf /usr/share/zoneinfo/GMT /etc/localtime

[email protected][#] date

Thu jan 12 01:31:36 GMT 2010

That’s all you are done.
