Change time zone

By default ACID is configured for the US Pacific time zone. The file /etc/localtime controls which time zone the system thinks it is in. All of the time zone files the rest of the world are located in /usr/share/zoneinfo. To change the time zone, find the time zone file you want to use, and make a soft link to it like this:

cd /etc
cp localtime localtime.orig
ln -sf /usr/share/zoneinfo/Australia/Victoria localtime

You can check to see that the time zone is now correct by using the date command from the shell.
