In Wowza How to change the time zone


Hello @Elwood Hernandez,

Yes the Wowza server time is set to be the same as the system clock.

This can be changed by editing the [Wowza-Install]/conf/Tune.xml file and adding the following line in the VMOptions container.

  1. -Duser.timezone=GMT

A restart of Wowza is required for the changes to take effect.

Note: you will likely see warning messages about the server statistics and may have to delete the [Wowza-Install]/stats/ directory so they are created fresh.
