MYSQL_TZINFO_TO_S(1)         MySQL Database System        MYSQL_TZINFO_TO_S(1)



NAME
       mysql_tzinfo_to_sql - load the time zone tables

SYNOPSIS
       mysql_tzinfo_to_sql arguments

DESCRIPTION
       The mysql_tzinfo_to_sql program loads the time zone tables in the mysql database. It is used on systems that
       have a zoneinfo database (the set of files describing time zones). Examples of such systems are Linux, FreeBSD,
       Solaris, and OS X. One likely location for these files is the /usr/share/zoneinfo directory
       (/usr/share/lib/zoneinfo on Solaris). If your system does not have a zoneinfo database, you can use the
       downloadable package described in Section 10.6, "MySQL Server Time Zone Support".

       mysql_tzinfo_to_sql can be invoked several ways:

           shell> mysql_tzinfo_to_sql tz_dir
           shell> mysql_tzinfo_to_sql tz_file tz_name
           shell> mysql_tzinfo_to_sql --leap tz_file

       For the first invocation syntax, pass the zoneinfo directory path name to mysql_tzinfo_to_sql and send the
       output into the mysql program. For example:

           shell> mysql_tzinfo_to_sql /usr/share/zoneinfo | mysql -u root mysql

       mysql_tzinfo_to_sql reads your system's time zone files and generates SQL statements from them.  mysql
       processes those statements to load the time zone tables.

       The second syntax causes mysql_tzinfo_to_sql to load a single time zone file tz_file that corresponds to a time
       zone name tz_name:

           shell> mysql_tzinfo_to_sql tz_file tz_name | mysql -u root mysql

       If your time zone needs to account for leap seconds, invoke mysql_tzinfo_to_sql using the third syntax, which
       initializes the leap second information.  tz_file is the name of your time zone file:

           shell> mysql_tzinfo_to_sql --leap tz_file | mysql -u root mysql

       After running mysql_tzinfo_to_sql, it is best to restart the server so that it does not continue to use any
       previously cached time zone data.
