Hello experts
I have a server hosted in US.

When I use: date("Y-m-d H:i");
It returns the local server time which is GMT-5

My question is : how can I get the time from Paris (+1 hour) ?
Regards

Put this in front of your code:

date_default_timezone_set('Europe/Paris');

Open in new window

Use this code


<?
$timezone  = +1; //(GMT +1:00)
echo gmdate("Y/m/j H:i:s", time() + 3600*($timezone+date("I")));
?>

Open in new window

Have a look here: http://www.php.net/manual/en/function.date.php

specifically at the Timezone section:

Timezone       ---       ---
e       Timezone identifier (added in PHP 5.1.0)       Examples: UTC, GMT, Atlantic/Azores
I (capital i)       Whether or not the date is in daylight saving time       1 if Daylight Saving Time, 0 otherwise.
O       Difference to Greenwich time (GMT) in hours       Example: +0200
P       Difference to Greenwich time (GMT) with colon between hours and minutes (added in PHP 5.1.3)       Example: +02:00
T       Timezone abbreviation       Examples: EST, MDT ...
Z       Timezone offset in seconds. The offset for timezones west of UTC is always negative, and for those east of UTC is always positive.       -43200 through 50400
