FreePBX and time zones



  • What does the Admin > System Admin > Time Zone setting affect? Should it affect the actual system clock of the server?

    Here's my scenario:

    1. During FreePBX Install (the OS part), do not set the time zone, which defaults to UTC.
    2. After the install, reboot, log into the FreePBX GUI.
    3. During the initial setup, you're prompted to confirm a time zone. At this time I specify EST.
    4. Reports > Asterisk Logfiles show logs in UTC (which makes sense, since from the OS perspective the time zone is UTC).
    5. Envelopes for voice mails are also in UTC.

    There is a setting for this, but I cannot find it right now.
