American Date conversion

Discussion in 'PHP' started by DarrenC, May 21, 2007.

    Before I start I'm clueless when it comes to PHP.

    In my database it is generating an American date format mm/dd/yyyy

    I want to make this into a UK date format dd/mm/yyyy

    Is there a php code to convert this?

    :rolleyes:

    function ukdate($usdate)
    {
    	return date('d/m/Y', strtotime($usdate));
    }
    
    // Outputs: 28/12/2006
    echo ukdate('12/28/2006');
