Hi,

I just would like to know how to produce the current time like


8:30 pm

I was having trouble using the date function like this


date("F j, Y, g :i a ")

for it produces a time under a different (default) timezone.

any help please...thanks

Set your servers default timezone (http://php.net/manual/en/function.date-default-timezone-set.php) first.

You can do as abduraooft suggests or you can simply do math on the time() function's timestamp result to add/subtract the appropriate amount of time before running the date() function on that timestamp - which you might need/want to do for adjustments from GMT (for example).

All you need to do is set the timezone, use the reference that abduraooft gave you.

If you need to find out what your current time zone is use:
http://www.php.net/manual/en/function.date-default-timezone-get.php

And here's the list of supported timezones:
http://www.php.net/manual/en/timezones.php

That should fix your issue easily

:):):):)Hi

I actually got the answer before I returned back to this post and saw the replies..

I read the php manual for time manipulations and just adjusted the timezone


date_default_timezone_set() to fit the timezone I am in..

Thanks anyways for your replies...
