convert dd/mm/yyyy H:i to yyyy-mm-dd H:i

Recommended Posts

Hi

 

I am using a datetimepicker in bootstrap and the date format being displayed is dd/mm/yyyy H:i I need it converted to yyyy-mm-dd H:i

 

The code I am using is

 

 

$newsdate = strtotime($_POST['txtDate']);
    $news_date = date('Y-m-d H:i:s', $newsdate);

 

However on date like to day 10th April which I would have as 10/04/2017  the code is converting that to 2017-10-04 instead of 2017-04-10

 

How can I get the dates converted correctly?

strtotime() cannot read your mind. It will make an educated guess about how to interpret the input date based on a few standard formats, but dd/mm/yyyy isn't one of those formats.

 

So if you want to make sure that the input is interpreted correctly, you need to explicitly specify the format. DateTime::createFromFormat() supports that.
