How can we change the date/time in linux?
Ans : Changing date in linux is bit confusing. If you want to change date in GUI it’s very much easy and if you want to change it when it comes to CLI it’s bit hard to remember it.
Date is the command to check whats the present date
To change the date use below command
MM => Two digit month value
DD => Two digit day value
HH => Two digit hour value
MM => Two digit minuite value
YYYY => Four digit year value
ss => Two digit seconds value(very rare we will be using this)
Example1 : I want to change the date to Nov 24 1:36 PM 2010
Example2 : I want to change the date to Jan 9th 8:05.04 AM 2010
Now the date will be changed to your required date.
