Why is the date and time showing incorrectly on my pi-star dashboard?

Post by M1DNS »

Raspberry Pi's don't have real time clocks like a std. PC.
Instead they rely on a signal they pull from a NTP, network time protocol server when they first start-up to set current time.
There's a chance the pi hasn't connected to the net with enough time to set the time. The easiest way to go this is

A. Leave it time to connect with the NTP server
B. Reboot the pi a couple times
or if that doesn't do it...
C. Log in to the pi, or via the CLI enter the commands.
rpi-rw <enter>
sudo locale-gen <enter>
