Type: string
Default: GMT
Context: user
Restart: false

Sets the time zone for displaying and interpreting time stamps. The built-in default is GMT, but that is typically overridden in postgresql.conf; initdb will install a setting there corresponding to its system environment. See datatype-timezones for more information.


To avoid a lot of confusion, make sure this is set to your local timeszone. If the server covers multiple time zones, then this should be set on a ROLE or connection basis.
