Set date time on Linux Ubuntu via command line

Sometime we need to set our linux date time without having touch the desktop. We can do it via remote ssh / telnet.

Syntax :

#date mmddhhyyyy.ss

For instance, to set the date/time for May 19th, 2007, 6:00pm (and 0 seconds), you would type:

#date 051918002007.00

Now you can set date time via command line.
