Hi - I would like to convert a timestamp integer to a localtime string.  If the input was a timestamp string (rather than an integer), I could use the datetime object as noted below.

// set object
$date = new DateTime($utc_timestamp, new DateTimeZone($utc_timezone));

// change to local timezone and create output
$date->setTimezone(new DateTimeZone($localtimezone));

$localtimestamp = $date->format('Y-m-d H:i:s');

I am sure that there is a simple solution that I am unaware of, I look forward to your insights, thanks!
