How To Get Present Time Of Any Time Zone In Opencart

Updated 17 March 2016

Normally we can get local date and time by using php date function but today we will learn to get present time of different time zone. Here is the code

$date = new DateTime('2014-06-1', new DateTimeZone('America/Mexico_City'));
$zone = $date->format('P');
$query = "SELECT CONVERT_TZ(NOW(), @@session.time_zone, '$zone') as time;";
$data = $this->db->query($query)->row;
$time = date("Y-m-d H:i:s", strtotime($data['time']));   

If we print the $date then it gives DateTime object

DateTime Object
    [date] => 2014-06-01 00:00:00.000000
    [timezone_type] => 3
    [timezone] => America/Mexico_City

If we print the $zone then it gives


If we print the $data then it gives
    [time] => 2016-02-17 13:44:42

If we print the $time then it gives

2016-02-17 13:52:59
