Local Time/System Time


So I realized that my UTM code was the time and date stamp would be off on occasions. So I went to the backend looking for the system time and enabled the >settings>Show backend time info. I noticed that my local time was correct but my system time didnt match my local time. So I SSH'ed into my linode and ran dpkg-reconfigure tzdata and noticed that the timezone was wrong. I set it to my time zone and then I ran DATE to make sure it was the right time which it was. But my backend still hasnt changed. See snapshot.

Everything related to dates is stored in utc:+00:00 and when shown in the frontend, it is converted to the selected timezone.
