Timezone script for PHP date
Posted on 2008-10-13
I am in the process of implimenting a timezone feature on my site. The users will have a profile where they can choose their correct timezone.
Im doing this so any dates/ times shown through-out the site are relevant to the user no matter where they are geographically.
anyway. I have datetime stamps in my database(mysql) and when i echo these out i want to perform the fix.
I think im close but i dont get why this doesnt work:
$rows['datetime'] = 14/10/08 03:24:22
$datetime = $rows['datetime'];
$datetime = date($datetime, strtotime('-1 hour'));
Im expecting this to echo 14/10/08 02:24:22 but it returns the same value as above 14/10/08 03:24:22
