Changing the timezone in Debian Buster

I recently spun up a couple of virtual servers with the Mythic Beasts provisioner, which didn’t give me the option of selecting my timezone. As a result the servers were using UTC and all the timestamps in my IRC client were off by one hour.

Fortunately changing the timezone is simple, by running the following command as root:

timedatectl set-timezone Europe/London
