NTP Client Configuration for Linux

If you are running a dedicated server and seems server’s time is delayed or is ahead of the actual time, we can use NTP to solve it.

# yum install ntp
# ntpdate pool.ntp.org


# ntpdate 0.fedora.pool.ntp.org

You can also add it to /etc/cron.daily to check correct Date/Time.
# cd /etc/cron.daily/
# vim ntp.sh
/usr/sbin/ntpdate pool.ntp.org

Save and exit the file. Now, make it as a executable by,
# chmod 755 /etc/cron.daily/ntp.sh

Finally restart the cron daemon.
# service crond restart
