When I set up my Omnia router I entered my local timezone in the setup wizard. In Foris, under “Region & Time” the correct timezone setting is displayed and the correct time for this zone is displayed. But snapshots and update notifications are labled with UTC.
Luci is even weirder. Under status>overview, the correct local time is displayed. But under system>system, where the timezone can be set, UTC time is displayed even though the “Timezone” section on the same page shows that it is set to my local zone. Also the system logs in Luci are all recorded in UTC.
I see in /etc/config/system that “option timezone” is set to UTC, but “option zonename” is set to my local time zone.
It looks like from the Openwrt wiki that setting “zonename” should be sufficient to set the local time for the router. https://openwrt.org/docs/guide-user/base-system/system_configuration Or should “timezone” also be set to my local time zone.
In the end, having the system diplay the time one way in one place and another way elsewhere seems weird. Is this normal behavior? A bug? Should I just change the timezone setting in /etc/config/system, to be the same as the zonename setting in the same config file? For that matter, why are there two different timezone setting options (“timezone” and “zonename”) in /etc/config/system?
