    Hi Guys,

    I'm currently running version of WHM/cPanel on my VPS. Recently XenForo released a new version that supports 2 Factor Authentication. The trouble is it's not working because my server time is off. Whenever I run "Sync With Time Server" from WHM, I get the following message:


    The trouble is this time is off by a minute or two from both my desktop computer and cell phone's time which prevents 2FA from working.

    Is there any way to use a different time server or a work around to set the correct time?

    Hello :)

    It's likely the server time requires an update on the VPS node itself. Have you reported this issue to your VPS provider to see if they can address the issue?

    Thank you.
