Timezone Settings

Some users might experience wrong dates/times in their Calendar. This is because the Calendar is using the server-side time. Although you should always set your host machine to your local time zone, you should specify the timezone for Homarr to ensure that the timezone is always set correctly.

Set Timezone in Docker

You can set the timezone using the --tz when running docker run.


docker run  \
--name homarr \
--restart unless-stopped \
--tz Europe/Paris \
-p 7575:7575 \
-v <your-path>/homarr/configs:/app/data/configs \
-v <your-path>/homarr/icons:/app/public/icons \

Set Timezone in Docker Compose

If you're using docker-compose, you can add the following to your docker-compose.yml file:

- TZ=America/Denver

Unsure what your timezone is? You can find yours on this Wikipedia page. Simply copy the value of the column "TZ database name".

Please note that this should work on nearly all systems. Check out these two amazing articles by howtogeek on timezones in containers:
