How to change server time using WHM

If you are running a dedicated hosting server and you come across a situation where you see that the date time of the server is showing a time different from your regional timezone then you can change it easily from your WHM panel.

Login into your WHM panel and then search for Server in the search box on the left sidebar.

WHM -> Server Configuration -> Server Time
WHM -> Server Configuration -> Server Time

As soon as you type it you will see that Server Time comes up in the results below. Click on the Server Time link and you will arrive at the next page which shows the current time of the server and the timezone.
