<?php
$row->real_timestamp='1392598061';
echo ' '.date("D", $row->real_timestamp);
echo'<br>'.date("M j, g:i A", $row->real_timestamp);

Open in new window


one server has output
Mon
Feb 17, 12:47 AM


another server
Warning: Creating default object from empty value in C:\wamp\www\test\real_timestamp.php on line 2
Sun
Feb 16, 7:47 PM

I have simplified this code because I am selecting mysql field and I have to add different numbers in order to show the real time.

I am looking for a specific reason why this occurs and not a link to php time.

The difference is almost certainly due to the PHP Timezone settings.  You can check this by printing out the return value from date_default_timezone_get().

You can also set the timezone as a PHP initialization setting, which makes sense because the server will rarely change time zones -- they are related to geography.
