Recreate date and time from a timestamp in PHP


Reconstruct readable date and time from an integer timestamp.


We have to use the date() function of PHP. The function takes a string containing the structure of the desired outputted date and the timestamp which we will use:

$readable_date = date(“d.m.Y H:i”, $timestamp_value);

echo $readable_date;

The function above will output something like: 04.05.2012  19:30 .
