How do I set the timezone of MySQL?

MySQLMySQLi Database

To know the current time, we can use the now() function with SELECT statement. The query is as follows −

mysql> SELECT now();

After executing the above query, we will get the current time. The following is the output −

+---------------------+
| now()               |
+---------------------+
| 2018-10-06 12:57:25 |
+---------------------+
1 row in set (0.02 sec)

To set the time zone, we can use the command SET. The syntax is as follows −

mysql> SET time_zone = "Some value";

Now I am applying the above query to set the time zone. The query is as follows −

mysql> SET time_zone = "+9:50";
Query OK, 0 rows affected (0.00 sec)

We can set globally as well with the help of SET command −

mysql> set global time_zone="+9:00";
Query OK, 0 rows affected (0.00 sec)
