Adding Year to TIme


Recommended Posts

I have a given date on a webpage, that I'm scraping to insert into a DB.  The date is in this format:

Sun, Feb 9<br />3:00 PM ET

I need to insert this into the DB in this format:  2020-02-09 15:00:00

It will always be this year...How can I change this data to be inserted correctly?

I'm trying this...and it's inserting as 1969

	$date = 'Sun, Feb 9<br />3:00 PM ET':
$healthy = array("<br />", " ET", "Sun.", "Mon.", "Tue.", "Wed.", "Thu", "Fri.", "Sat.", "Jan", "Feb", "Mar", "Apr", "May", "Jun", "Jul", "Aug", "Sep", "Oct", "Nov", "Dec");
$yummy   = array("  ", "2020", "Sunday", "Monday", "Tuesday", "Wednesday", "Thursday", "Friday", "Saturday", "January", "February", "March", "April", "May", "June", "July", "August", "September", "October", "November", "December");
	$date = str_replace($healthy, $yummy, $date1);
	$start = date('Y-m-d H:i:s', strtotime("$date -120 minutes"));
	



Thanks!

Looks like you just have to skip some parts

var_dump(new DateTime('Sun, Feb 9 3:00 PM'));

/**

object(DateTime)#1 (3) {
  ["date"]=>
  string(26) "2020-02-09 15:00:00.000000"
  ["timezone_type"]=>
  int(3)
  ["timezone"]=>
  string(16) "Europe/Amsterdam"
}

then modify() and format().

$date = 'Sun, Feb 9<br />3:00 PM ET';
$date = str_replace('<br />', ' ', $date);
$dtobj = DateTime::createFromFormat('D, M j g:i A *', $date);

echo $dtobj->format('Y-m-d H:i:s');                         // 2020-02-09 15:00:00
