Recreate Date and Time from a Timestamp in PHP

Posted on the 04 May 2012 by Akahgy


Reconstruct readable date and time from an integer timestamp.


We have to use the date() function of PHP. The function takes a string containing the structure of the desired outputted date and the timestamp which we will use:

$readable_date = date(“d.m.Y H:i”, $timestamp_value);

echo $readable_date;

The function above will output something like: 04.05.2012  19:30 .
