Configure the default timezone

Before running the commands shown on this page, you should load the Bitnami stack environment by executing the installdir/use_APPNAME script (Linux and MacOS) or by clicking the shortcut in the Start Menu under “Start -> Bitnami APPNAME Stack -> Application console” (Windows). On OS X VMs, the installation directory is /opt/bitnami and OS X VM users can click the “Open Terminal” button to run commands. Learn more about the Bitnami stack environment and about OS X VMs.
  • Check all the available timezones by executing these commands:

      $ cd installdir/apps/redmine/htdocs/
      $ bundle exec rake time:zones:all
  • Once you decide on the correct one, edit the file installdir/apps/redmine/htdocs/config/application.rb and substitute the line

      config.active_record.default_timezone = :local


      config.active_record.default_timezone = 'your_timezone'

    Note that the single quotes around the timezone value are necessary.

  • Restart services.

      $ sudo installdir/ restart apache
