Edit timezone ALE 2.0.0.8 how?

We are using the ALE 2.0.0.8 server - and his API to receive location presence data to process in our platform.

 

We see the timestamp in ALE webgui at 19 october 03:30 PM GMT

 

While our timezone is GMT +1 Amsterdam - so our current time is 17:30 (5:30 PM).

 

We see in Configuration > Options > NTP server, and typed in a Dutch ntp server.

 

But we can not edit Timezone to GMT +1.. so how to be sure ALE server is using correct time?

Hi Christiaan,


There are a bunch of files stored by region in the following directory:

/usr/share/zoneinfo

 

Take a look and find the one which matches your region. Then you have to create a symlink from /etc/localtime

 

In this case since its Amsterdam, we can follow the below steps,

 

# rm -f localtime

# ln -s /usr/share/zoneinfo/Europe/Amsterdam /etc/localtime

# /etc/init.d/ale-jwebapp restart

Re: Edit timezone ALE 2.0.0.8 how?

Hi there,

 

thanks for the response..

 

I tried to do the commands, but at second sline, response from CLI > is that file already exists: "/etc/localtime"

 

I tried without that part, and then restarted, but no effect. Wegbui still shows UTC

Hi,


It is because the localtime file is not removed. Please try the below,

 

# cd /etc

# rm -f localtime

 

Now the below commands,

 

# ln -s /usr/share/zoneinfo/Europe/Amsterdam /etc/localtime

# /etc/init.d/ale-jwebapp restart
