To change the time zone in MongoDB, you can use the following steps:

  1. Connect to your MongoDB instance using the mongo shell or any other MongoDB client.
  2. Use the use command to select the database where you want to change the time zone:
use mydatabase

  1. Set the timeZone option to the desired time zone using the db.runCommand() method:
db.runCommand({setParameter: 1, timeZone: "America/New_York"})

Replace "America/New_York" with the desired time zone. You can find a list of supported time zones in the tz database.

Note that the setParameter command requires the setParameter action on the admin database. If you do not have the necessary permissions, you may need to authenticate as a user with the required privileges before running the command.

You can verify that the time zone has been changed by running the following command:

db.runCommand({whatsmyuri : 1})

The output of this command will include the current time zone.

To change the timezone in MongoDB, you can modify the system clock on the server where MongoDB is running. MongoDB uses the system clock of the server to determine the timezone.

To change the timezone, follow these steps:

  1. Determine the current timezone: Run the command date +%Z in the terminal of the server where MongoDB is running. This will output the current timezone.
  2. Change the timezone: On Linux, you can use the timedatectl command to change the timezone. For example, to change the timezone to "America/New_York", run the command sudo timedatectl set-timezone America/New_York.
  3. Verify the new timezone: Run the command date +%Z again to verify that the timezone has been updated to the desired value.
  4. Restart MongoDB: Restart the MongoDB service to ensure that it picks up the new system clock with the updated timezone. The method to restart MongoDB depends on your operating system. For example, on Linux, you can run the command sudo systemctl restart mongod.

By changing the system clock and restarting MongoDB, the new timezone will be used by MongoDB for any date and time operations.
