Changing Linux server time zone

If you want to change the time zone for your server to match your own time zone then this can be done very easily by doing the following:

1.) Remove the existing time zone setup with: "rm /etc/localtime"

2.) Symlink the time zone you want with: "ln -s /usr/share/zoneinfo/Europe/London /etc/localtime" (where Europe/London is the time zone you want!)

If you now issue "date" you should now see the time zone had been adjusted!
