You may be encountering issues with crontabs because your instance is set on a different time zone than the one where you are located.
By default, Outscale instances are set on UTC / GMT time. To specify another time zone (for example, Paris time), you can run the following commands in a terminal of your instance:
# Set TimeZone $> timedatectl set-timezone "Europe/Paris" # Restart Related Services $> /etc/init.d/cron restart $> /etc/init.d/rsyslog restart # Check the setting variable $> cat /etc/timezone
In the above example, you can replace
America/New_Yorkfor US Eastern time (EST)
America/Los_Angelesfor US Pacific time (PST)
Asia/Hong_Kongfor Hong Kong time
