Setup local timezone in the Koha Server with 3 commands

 Sometimes our server and local time has difference, which makes the sytem behind the current time.

Enter the command below: 

Command 2: 

timedatectl list-timezones

Command 3: 

timedatectl set-timezone Asia/Dhaka

Let's check the configuration:
