Hello,

1. How do I find out the default timezone used by MySQL on my Linux server?
2. How do I change the default timezone? (e.g. from GMT+2 to GMT+5)

Thanks.

This will show current setting:

show variables like "%time_zone%";

Change in runtime, per session:

set time_zone = '+5:00';

...or globally:

SET GLOBAL time_zone =  '+5:00';

You can also change it in the mysql configuration or startup command:
