What timezone is my cron jobs based on?

With server cron jobs you can set at what interval your want them to run. But perhaps you’ve wondered what these intervals are based on. The time a cron job is based on is the set date of the server.

There is two main ways to figure out which date and time your server is set to.

  • First is to see where in the world you server is located. If it is located in Amsterdam, Netherland, it will have the same timezone as that city (CET / GMT+1)
  • The other method would be to log into your server with SSH and run the date command.
