Snorby No time_zone specified in snorby_config.yml; detected time_zone:

November 2, 2013

When I installed Snorby 2.6.2 and I started it, everything looked good and worked but I was getting that warning below, all the time:


No time_zone specified in snorby_config.yml; detected time_zone: America/Los_Angeles

Regardless of the fact I already put it in the config file: snorby_config.yml

  # If timezone_search is undefined or false, searching based on time will
  # use UTC times (historical behavior). If timezone_search is true
  # searching will use local time.
  timezone_search: true
  # uncomment to set time zone to time zone of box from /usr/share/zoneinfo, e.g. “America/Cancun”
  time_zone: ‘America/Los_Angeles’


So how did I fix it? Pretty simple actually but took me a lot of digging. Edit application.rd which is in the config directory, that way:

## time_zone = CONFIG[:time_zone] # set your local time zone here. use rake time:zones:local to choose a value, or use UTC.
    time_zone = “America/Los_Angeles”


That’s it. Search for the string “Central Time”. It is right after it. Line 77
