Lets say in my mysql database I have a timestamp
September 30th, 2013
$timestamp = "2013-09-30 01:16:06"; echo date("F jS, Y", strtotime($timestamp)); //September 30th, 2013
Note the use of
S to get the english ordinal suffix for the day.
Since you're already using
strtotime if you need a human readable data for the current time you can just use the keyword "now" as in
