Time is off by a couple of minutes on server :(

Installed WP on Flywheel but WP displays the wrong time. It’s off by about 9 minutes or so.

The current UTC time according to the server when this page loaded: 2017-04-23 08:15:53, and in the time-zone you have configured in your WP settings: 2017-04-23 01:15:53

The WP settings time shows 1:15:53 when it’s actually 1:24:53 (approximately).
I think the timezone is adjusted from the server time, which is 8:15:53.

So the server time is off by about 9 minutes, then WP adjust the time based on the timezone set in the settings. But since the server time is off then WP time is off after timezone is taken into account.

Any idea on how to troubleshoot this?

A year later, I have the same issue :slight_smile:


Can you try the following?

  1. Open Terminal
  2. Run
/Applications/Local\ by\ Flywheel.app/Contents/Resources/extraResources/virtual-machine/vendor/docker/osx/docker-machine ssh local-by-flywheel sudo ntpclient -s -h pool.ntp.org
  1. Check the site time
