    How do I configure the time or timezone in cPanel. I need to set it to Pacific Standard Time, but can not find it within cPanel. Is there something to do on the node itself?

    Thank you!

    If you can ssh in as root, just type
    cp /usr/share/zoneinfo/America/Los_Angeles /etc/localtime
    and that will set you timezone to pacific.

    That will copy the file Los_Angeles from zoneinfo to /etc/localtime, which tells your server it is in Pacific Time.
