Default mm/dd/yyyy to dd/mm/yyyy

Hi All,

This may be a pretty simple question but I've searched google and cant find the method to change a date fromat from mm/dd/yyyy to dd/mm/yyyy in PHP. I would like if I could also convert it to 22nd September 2006 format too....but the first conversion will do :-)

I've read this thread for an ASP solution: -

but im a bit lost with it.

hope you can help :-)

Thanks
Ash

the answer to this i found on SiePoint forum.......

<?
$olddate = "10/22/2006"; // Or any other valid date format
$newdate = date("l dS F Y", strtotime($olddate));
echo $newdate;
?>

This will change any date into any other format...really simple and really cool!
