I have a string that I need to convert into a datetime. The string shows the date and time like below.

2/6/2013 11:47

I need to convert this into Y-m-d H:i:s

I have tried a couple of things with no luck so far. Wondering if anyone had a quick solution. Thanks

<?php
error_reporting(E_ALL);

$s = '2/6/2013 11:47';
$date = strtotime($s);
echo date('d/M/Y H:i:s', $date);
?>

See here: http://www.php.net/manual/en/function.strtotime.php and here: http://www.php.net/manual/en/function.date.php    Please read the notes for 'strtotime' because there are some limits in what it will understand.  

$nudate = strtotime("2/6/2013 11:47");
echo date("Y-m-d H:i:s", $nudate);
