Asterisk displays wrong time

From Kolmisoft Wiki

It has been reported, when system moves to another time (summer <-> winter) asterisk still using old time, even when time is changed in system itself.

Solution: make sure you have a right time running, by copying correct zoneinfo file from /usr/share/zoneinfo/ to /etc/localtime


cp /usr/share/zoneinfo/Europe/Vilnius /etc/localtime

Then run:


This will switch system time to "Europe/Vilnius".

Sometimes asterisk requires restart to use new date. We recommend our script which will stop new incoming calls, bills and then stop those calls which are in progress.
