Configuring your Debian-based server timezone

So I was reading some logs the other day and noticed my timestamps were different from my local time.

Since I neede to be able to quickly read it, it would be easier if I setup the server to properly handle time for me.

My server is Debian-based, so a little research on the Ubuntu Wiki returned me this:

sudo dpkg-reconfigure tzdata

And there you go. A nice setup tool to help you configure your timezone preferences correctly.
