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.

NOTE: The Approach A sections referred to below do not apply to Bitnami native installers. Users of Bitnami native installers should refer only to the Approach B sections.

  • Navigate to the Redmine installation directory. Depending on your installation type, execute the following commands:

    • Approach A (Bitnami installations using system packages):

        $ cd installdir/redmine
      
    • Approach B (Self-contained Bitnami installations):

        $ cd installdir/apps/redmine/htdocs/
      
  • Check all the available timezones by executing these commands:

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

      config.active_record.default_timezone = :local
    

    with

      config.active_record.default_timezone = 'your_timezone'
    

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

  • Restart services.

      $ sudo installdir/ctlscript.sh restart apache
