    How to set time on server?


    I have a dedicated server running RH 7.3 and the time on the server is fast. I use the command 'date -s' to reset it but after 2 weeks the time is fast again by a few minutes. Any idea how to correct this and set the time so that it does not keep getting fast?

    Check out NTP, it'll sync you within like, 100th's of a second, from what i've seen.

    Setup a cron job that'll hit up a server every day or so.

    There's an old thread on WHT dealing with this subject.

    Hope that helps you

    IF you have Cpanel on your server, you can set time from within WHM and also sync it with the timeserver

    If you have rdate installed as root!
