Hi Guys / Girls

I have a php date and time that im using which is

"F d Y, H:i"

but this is using the time from the server in US and i'm in UK, so how can i add 5 hours to the time to be correct for me.

Thanks in-advance for your help

P.S i'm a php newbie i'm afraid !!!

Something like this, maybe?

echo date("F d Y, H:i", strtotime("+5 hour"));


echo date("F d Y, H:i", (time() + (5 * 60 * 60)));
