Setting the server time zone in WHM
At times, you may find the need to change the server's time zone settings to reflect your timezone. This can be easily accomplished through WHM. If you're not familiar with WHM please review our VPS/ Dedicated WHM article.
Please be advised, you must have root access to change the time zone on the server.
- Log into WHM
- From the Main Screen go to "Server Configuration"
- Click on "Server Time"
- From the dropdown menu, select the time zone you wish to change the server to.
- If you have noticed your server time is out of sync you can select the "Sync Time with Time Server" option. If your server is configured correctly this should rarely need to be done. This will resynchronize your server with the Time Server to display the correct time for the time zone you have selected.
If you need further assistance please feel free to contact our support department.

I logged in as root, and the only option is Basic cPanel & WHM Setup.

Sorry to hear you're having problems with the login to the WHM. It appears that you're not logging in as root, because if I login to your account as root, I see all of the options. Make sure that you're using the user name of "root". If you continue to have problems with the login, then please contact live technical support so that they can help you with the login over the phone. The contact information can be found in the bottom of this screen.
