You make timestamps out of them using strtotime. Then you do $secondsDiff = $time2 - $time1

Then you need to format it in the way you like.

Watch out for certain limits on different OSs. Some don't like -ve time. So make sure you always use ...

$secondsDiff = abs($time2 - $time1);

You can use mktime like this

diff=mktime(hr1,min1,sec1,mon1,day1,year1)-mktime(hr2,min2,sec2,mon2,day2,year2);

to convert this diference to date you can do like this date("Y-m-d H:i:s",diff);

Looks like an Sql would also do the Job:

SELECT TIMEDIFF(col1, col2) AS time_diff FROM table_name
