    My server is 4 minutes behind in time, how would I fix this? I tried a few rdate commands but the time still stays the same 4 minutes behind, why is that?

    Please help!

    Did you try syncing it in WHM? Under "Server Setup" the "Server Time" link allows you to synchronize.

    It doesn't work... off by 2 minutes, it is really important that it is the exact time! :(

    That is because darkorb's timing is 2 minutes ahead, I need a better server to sync my timing with.

    Go on, have a guess
    Personally I have an daily cronjob that does:

    ntpdate us.pool.ntp.org

    Which keeps my servers usually withn 1 to 2 seconds accuracy.
