Hi,
I was wondering if or how I can fix the time on our forums. The reason I ask is because it is showing to be 20 minutes out, which is an odd number. Any ideas or suggestions?

Hi,
Well when I go the forums, www.xhl.biz/STHS/forums the time that shows is 9:10am and the time on my pc is 10:30, so it is 1hr and 20 mins difference. I'm not worried about the 1hr issue as it is just the time setting I have chosen for the forums, but the 20 minutes difference I do not understand. "The time now is Sat Jan 13, 2007 9:10 am".

This isn't really a CPanel problem, but a forum administration problem, maybe even a server time problem.

If you have root access, you can try the following:
Login as root to ssh
enter the following code into the command line:
Code:
rdate -s rdate.cpanel.net&
This should fix your server's date issues.

Thanks twhitting. I'm not the most experienced person, but I am an adminstator of the forums, and am the one of theguys that have access to the Cpanel index.. Saying that, I'm not sure what you mean by what you said. Where do I go to log in as root?

This would have to be done by the server administrator. If that's not you, contact them. He's telling you to login to the server using the command shell and execute the text given on the command line. It can't be done through WHM/Cpanel. You should probably contact your hosting provider if you don't run the server yourself.
