    Default Local timezone for Users?

    Any idea's on this.

    setup a local time zone in users accounts to over-ride the server settings.

    we tried a file in

    /home/user/etc/profile

    TZ='Country/City'
    Export TZ


    didn't work, appreciate any feedback.

    thanks.

    Howdy!

    What's it for? If it's for cgi, lots of programs allow you to set the time and date, so it shouldn't be that hard to add it in...

    Hey Casey

    we need this so that any programs running off that user account will use the time zone we specify.

    Instead of the default server time zone, and without having to modify any forums or scripts loaded into that particular account.

    some servers have clients from across the globe, letting them specify time zone would be good.

    thanks.

    Hmm. Here's a link for Debian:
    http://sophia.jpte.hu/linux/sag/node93.html

    Perhaps in the case of RedHat it would be a symlink from home/usr/etc/localtime to /usr/share/zoneinfo/LOCALTIMEZONE
