PHP has datetime functions but not a datetime object.  Datetime values are normally stored in strings and converted as needed.  Here http://www.php.net/manual/en/function.date.php is info about the basic 'date' function and on the left are all the other date and time functions.

In the Example #4 date() Formatting section on that page:

$today = date("Y-m-d H:i:s");   // 2001-03-10 17:16:18 (the MySQL DATETIME format)

Open in new window

Conversion methods are also shown on that page.
