Converting date format in PHP (but what format is this in?) [duplicate]


Tag: php,date,datetime,time

This question already has an answer here:

I'm using the Envato API to verify purchases made on their site, and the date/time outputted as part of an API query for the purchase is like so:

Wed May 20 06:37:57 +1000 2015

Firstly, what format is this in (is there a name for it, and also in terms of the PHP date/time format?) and secondly how can I convert this into a different format?

When I use the strtotime() function and then date() as below, the output seems to be wrong by a few hours. Could this be because of a different in time zones between Envato (Australia) and me (England) or am I missing something?

$old = strtotime("Wed May 20 06:37:57 +1000 2015");
echo date('Y-m-d H:i:s', $old);

The above outputs the following: 2015-05-19 22:37:57.

Any help would be much appreciated, thanks!


this should work :

$date="Wed May 20 06:37:57 +1000 2015";
$datetime = DateTime::createFromFormat('D F d H:i:s O Y',$date);
echo $datetime->format('Y-m-d H:i:s');

and if you want to convert-it to british timezone :

$datetime->setTimezone(new DateTimezone('Europe/London'));
echo "Queen's datetime: ".$datetime->format('Y-m-d H:i:s')
