I am running a web server on ubuntu 14.04 (nginx as a proxy for a node application, as well as a go application daemonized using supervisor). I would like to know the implications of manually changing the date/time of the server.
I haven't been able to obtain any information that leads me to think this has potentially serious implications.
Unfortunately I can't use something like libfaketime because it doesn't interface with my applications running on the server, and I'll need all applications that rely on time to be synchronized.
Will changing the time manually affect services like SSH, or anything else I may be unaware of?
