(TIL) PSQL: Configure The Timezone

less than 1 minute read

Running show timezone; will reveal the timezone for your postgres connection. If you want to change the timezone for the duration of the connection, you can run something like

> set timezone='America/New_York';
SET
> show timezone;
 TimeZone
------------------
 America/New_York
(1 row)

Now, if you run a command such as select now();, the time will be in Eastern time.
