Changing Time zone in an OpenVZ VPS.

Changing the time in VPS via WHM Main >> Server Configuration >> Server Time, won’t change the VPS time correctly to a time zone other that that in the hardware node.
You can change it with ntp.

For this install ntp:

yum -y install ntp

Identify time zone from

# vi /etc/ntp.conf

select a server.


# ntpdate servername

While doing the ntpupdate you may receive the following error: “step-systime operation not permitted”

Suggested Fix

# vzctl stop

# vzctl set –capability sys_time:on –save

needs to be replaced by your container’s ID
After executing the command above, your container’s configuration file needs to be reloaded. Thus, use ‘vzctl‘ to restart it.

# vzctl restart
