Reports displays UTC rather than local time

I have just begun running Odoo 8. I notice that all reports display UTC in the upper left hand corner. Is it possible to display the localtime instead?

In postgresql.conf, timezone = 'localtime' and lc_time = ' en_US.UTF-8'.

Yes, I had already done that, but the report results are the same - they display UTC time.

Do you have timezone parameter in openerp-server.conf?

No. Can you point me to documentation about this file?

Thanks zbik.

You set in conf like this: timezone = Europe/Warsaw and test. PS. Windows? Linux? Server timezone?

Odoo running on Ubuntu 14.04. timezone = America/Los_Angeles timezone = UTC-08 Either format?

I have no more ideas :(

I tried the timezone = America/Los_Angeles but no luck. I also tried: timezone = localtime, but the server failed to start

You change User preferences (click on user name in right-top corner) and set Timezone.
