Use the date command. It should be at /bin/date.

To display the current system time, enter the date command with no arguments:

waycool:~# date
Fri Jul 30 02:28:22 PDT 1999

To set the current system time, use the following form of the date command:

date
MMDDhhmm[
CC]
YY[.
ss]
The parts of the command argument have the following meanings:

MM
A two-digit month, 01-12.

DD
A two-digit day of month, 01-31.

hh
A two-digit hour, 00-24.

mm
A two-digit minute, 00-59.

CC
An optional two-digit century; for example, 19 or 20.

YY
A two-digit year; for example, 99 or 00.

ss
An optional two-digit second, 00-59.

The command displays the time you enter and then sets the system time:

waycool:~# date 073010411999
Fri Jul 30 10:41:00 PDT 1999

When you power down or reboot your system, the system date and time will revert to the values held in non-volatile (CMOS) memory. To store the Linux date and time in CMOS, issue the following command:

hwclock --systohc
If you set your clock to UTC rather than local time, issue the command:

hwclock --systohc --utc
