Your system's clock is slow.

Linode Staff
When I access Longview, this warning appears "Your system's clock is slow. Please ensure that NTP is installed and running." How can I fix this?

While NTP may be installed on your system, it's possible the port NTP uses (port 123) is currently closed.

You may have to open up this port so that NTP can work properly. This guide may be helpful in understanding the firewall rules that are blocking NTP.

I hope this helps!
