    Is there a way to change the NTP server cPanel uses to sync time?

    We run our own stratum 1 NTP server locally. I would rather use that one as first priority.

    Thanks,
    Chuck

    Hello Chuck,

    cPanel uses rdate to synchronize the server time to rdate.cpanel.net via the /scripts/rdate script. However, if you install NTP on your system to manage the time, then /scripts/rdate will exit without making changes as long as NTP is enabled and running. Thus, cPanel will not interfere with the time sync if you install NTP on the server and configure it to use your own NTP server.

    Thank you.
