Display date and time

I am using ASP/VB  and on my page I am trying to display the date and time, I am using:  <% =now %>
And that is great but it shows  9/18/2015 9:00:00 AM
And I need for it to be:  09/18/2015 9:00:00

And if its 8 pm it should be:   09/18/2015 20:00:00

I am not sure how to do this.

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

check this:

Dim TestDateTime As Date = #1/27/2001 5:04:23 PM#
Dim TestStr As String
' Returns current system time in the system-defined long time format.
TestStr = Format(Now(), "Long Time")
' Returns current system date in the system-defined long date format.
TestStr = Format(Now(), "Long Date")
' Also returns current system date in the system-defined long date  
' format, using the single letter code for the format.
TestStr = Format(Now(), "D")

' Returns the value of TestDateTime in user-defined date/time formats.
' Returns "5:4:23".
TestStr = Format(TestDateTime, "h:m:s")
' Returns "05:04:23 PM".
TestStr = Format(TestDateTime, "hh:mm:ss tt")
' Returns "Saturday, Jan 27 2001".
TestStr = Format(TestDateTime, "dddd, MMM d yyyy")
' Returns "17:04:23".
TestStr = Format(TestDateTime, "HH:mm:ss")
' Returns "23".
TestStr = Format(23)

' User-defined numeric formats.
' Returns "5,459.40".
TestStr = Format(5459.4, "##,##0.00")
' Returns "334.90".
TestStr = Format(334.9, "###0.00")
' Returns "500.00%".
TestStr = Format(5, "0.00%")

especialy this one:
TestStr = Format(TestDateTime, "dddd, MMM d yyyy")
' Returns "17:04:23".

I actually have the following script, but its giving me an error when I try to display the value:

<script language="JavaScript" type="text/JavaScript">
function d2(n) { return n>9?n:"0"+n; }

function todayStr() {
     var today=new Date()
     return d2(today.getMonth()+1)+"/"+d2(today.getDate())+"/"+(today.getYear())+" "+ (formatAMPM(today))

function formatAMPM(date) {
  var hours = date.getHours();
  var minutes = date.getMinutes();
  var seconds = date.getSeconds();
  var ampm = hours >= 12 ? 'PM' : 'AM';
  hours = hours % 12;
  hours = hours ? hours : 12; // the hour '0' should be '12'
  minutes = minutes < 10 ? '0'+minutes : minutes;
  var strTime = hours + ':' + minutes +':'+ seconds + ' ' + ampm;
  return strTime;

Error:  Microsoft VBScript runtime error '800a000d'

Type mismatch: 'todayStr'
i would split up that line in peaces, and see where it fails.

I am not sure how to do that. I took out the time but still got the same issue.
AleksAuthor Commented:
Can someone please help with the script ?   I can't seem to make that one work. I don't mind using a new one if needed.

This worked:

<% function todayStr()
     dim theDate, theDay, theMonth
     theDate = FormatDateTime( now, 2)
     theMonth = Month(theDate)
     if CInt( theMonth ) < 10 then theMonth = "0" & theMonth

     theDay = Day( theDate )
     if CInt( theDay ) < 10 then theDay = "0" & theDay

     todayStr = theMonth & "/" & theDay & "/" & Year(theDate)&" "&formatdatetime(now,3)
end function
