How to set the timezone in Django?

159

In my django project's settings.py file, I have this line :

TIME_ZONE = 'UTC'

But I want my app to run in UTC+2 timezone, so I changed it to

TIME_ZONE = 'UTC+2'

It gives the error ValueError: Incorrect timezone setting: UTC+2. What is the correct way of doing this?

Thanks!

Here is the list of valid timezones:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_tz_database_time_zones

You can use

TIME_ZONE = 'Europe/Istanbul'

for UTC+02:00

To get a set of all valid timezone names (ids) from the tz database, you could use pytz module in Python:

>>> import pytz # $ pip install pytz
>>> pytz.all_timezones_set
LazySet({'Africa/Abidjan',
         'Africa/Accra',
         'Africa/Addis_Ababa',
         'Africa/Algiers',
         'Africa/Asmara',
         'Africa/Asmera',
         ...
         'UTC',
         'Universal',
         'W-SU',
         'WET',
         'Zulu'})
