Seems this problem occurs more when I'm looking on the internet.
Try this:

cat /etc/sysconfig/clock

Make sure this is containing the same info as /etc/localtime, if not, change it (you probably also need to reboot the vps, not sure about that).

I usually do this by default:
Code:
ln -sf /usr/share/zoneinfo/Europe/Amsterdam /etc/localtime
If you did it the same and your clock still changes, you could try this which I found on the internet.

Code:
sed -i '/ZONE/c \ZONE="Europe\/Amsterdam"' /etc/sysconfig/clock
ln -sf /usr/share/zoneinfo/Europe/Amsterdam /etc/localtime
change Europe and Amstertime to your own timezone and city.
