Try the following steps:

Step 1: SSH into your EC2 instance

Step 2: Run the following block of commands to  change the timezone

Note: This particular block of commands sets the timezone to Australia/Adelaide. You can choose your own timezone and replace it with Australia/Adelaide in the following block of commands.

$ echo "Australia/Adelaide" | sudo tee /etc/timezone


$ sudo dpkg-reconfigure --frontend noninteractive tzdata

Current default time zone: 'Australia/Adelaide'

Local time is now:      Thu July  8 21:19:24 CST 2019.

Universal Time is now:  Thu July 8 11:49:24 UTC 2019.
