Timezone in RoR

From Kolmisoft Wiki

Jump to: navigation, search

If time is not displayed correctly in GUI and date command in SSH shows correct time, then:

  • In file /home/mor/config/environment.rb write:
ENV['TZ'] = 'Europe/Vilnius'

Off course change timezone value to correct one.

  • Restart Apache

Correct format is:

ENV['TZ'] = 'Continent/Capital'

Check time by entering


into console. You'll see your localtime, if you still see new calls with old time, then you have to restart asterisk (How to restart Asterisk server)

Available timezones could be found in /usr/share/zoneinfo

You have to choose correct timezone file and copy it on top of /etc/localtime file.

Example if your server is in Dublin , Europe:

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

Next step, change hardware clock time to your localtime:

hwclock --systohc

Check hardware clock time by running:

hwclock --show

Then restart asterisk, if this doesn't help, restart your server.
