To set the timezone in Magento 2, follow these steps:

  1. Log in to the Magento Admin as an administrator.
  2. In the left navigation bar, click Stores. Then under Settings, click Configuration.
  3. In the left navigation panel, under General, click General.
  4. Scroll down to the Locale Options section.
  5. In the Timezone field, select the desired timezone from the drop-down menu.
  6. Click Save Config to save your changes.

It's important to note that the timezone setting in Magento affects the time displayed in the Admin panel and on the storefront, as well as the time used for generating reports and scheduling tasks. It does not affect the time used for processing orders or logging events.

Also, make sure that the server's system time is set correctly for the selected timezone. If the server's system time is not accurate, it can cause discrepancies in the displayed times. You may need to contact your hosting provider or system administrator to update the server's system time if necessary.


Additionally, Magento 2 provides an option to set the timezone programmatically using code. You can customize the timezone based on your specific requirements by modifying the code. Here is an example of how to set the timezone programmatically:

  1. In your custom module, create a new file called di.xml in the following path: app/code/{Vendor}/{Module}/etc/
  2. Add the following code to the di.xml file:
1
2
3
4
<?xml version="1.0"?>
<config xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xsi:noNamespaceSchemaLocation="urn:magento:framework:ObjectManager/etc/config.xsd">
    <preference for="MagentoFrameworkStdlibDateTimeTimezoneInterface" type="{Vendor}{Module}OverrideTimezone" />
</config>


  1. Create a new file called Timezone.php in the following path: app/code/{Vendor}/{Module}/Override/
  2. Add the following code to the Timezone.php file:
 1
 2
 3
 4
 5
 6
 7
 8
 9
10
11
12
13
<?php

namespace {Vendor}{Module}Override;

use MagentoFrameworkStdlibDateTimeTimezoneInterface;

class Timezone extends MagentoFrameworkStdlibDateTimeTimezone implements TimezoneInterface
{
    public function getConfiguredTimezone()
    {
        return 'America/New_York'; // Replace with your desired timezone
    }
}


  1. Save the files and clear the Magento cache by running the following command:
1
php bin/magento cache:clean


  1. The timezone will now be set to the specified value programmatically.


By following these steps, you can set the timezone either through the Magento Admin panel or programmatically using code to customize it to your specific needs.
