php – Convert to date format dd/mm/yyyy

Posted by: admin April 23, 2020 Leave a comment


I have the following date: 2010-04-19 18:31:27. I would like to convert this date to the dd/mm/yyyy format.

How to&Answers:

You can use a regular expression or some manual string fiddling, but I think I prefer:

date("d/m/Y", strtotime($str));


$test1='2010-04-19 18:31:27';
echo date('d/m/Y',strtotime($test1));

try this


If your date is in the format of a string use the explode function

    array explode ( string $delimiter , string $string [, int $limit ] )
//In the case of your code

$length = strrpos($oldDate," ");
$newDate = explode( "-" , substr($oldDate,$length));
$output = $newDate[2]."/".$newDate[1]."/".$newDate[0];

Hope the above works now


There is also the DateTime object if you want to go that way: http://www.php.net/manual/en/datetime.construct.php


Try this:

$old_date = Date_create("2010-04-19 18:31:27");
$new_date = Date_format($old_date, "d/m/Y");


$source    =    'your varible name';
$date    =     new DateTime($source);
$_REQUEST["date"]    =     $date->format('d-m-Y');

echo $_REQUEST["date"];
