Posted on October 13th, 2014 | Posted by admin

The date time will be calculated based on the lacale timezone settings in administration:

$anyDate = ’2012-11-21 13:00:00′;
$dateTimestamp = Mage::getModel(‘core/date’)->timestamp(strtotime($anyDate));
echo $currentDate = date(‘Y-m-d H:i:s’, $dateTimestamp);

Other PHP scripts to find the offset for the timezone

/** Script to calculate the offset seconds fro the timezone */
$timezone = new DateTimeZone(“Europe/London”);
$offset = $timezone->getOffset(new DateTime(“now”)); // Offset in seconds
