I added a cron job with crontab -e. Then, I changed the timezone.

However, it seems as if the cron job is still firing in the old timezone.

Do I need to restart it cron? (e.g. service cron reload)



Yes, you need to restart cron. However, service cron reload only reloads configuration files, and doesn't apply the new timezone. Use this (similar) command:

service cron restart
