This support article demonstrates how to change the timezone for a virtual private server (VPS) in Plesk. Unless otherwise specified, all VPS’s are set to GMT +10:00 Australia/Brisbane time. If you're located in a different timezone (eg Sydney or Melbourne), you can update the timezone so that the server displays the correct time.

Note: Australia/Brisbane time zone is not subject to Daylight Savings time changes. 


  1. Once you have logged in to Plesk, click on “Tools & Settings”.

  3. Under “System Date and Time” select the required timezone from the list of available zones. Click “OK”.
