To convert a MySQL timestamp to AWSDateTime format using PHP, you can use the following steps:

  1. Get the MySQL timestamp value from the database.
  2. Convert the MySQL timestamp to a Unix timestamp using the strtotime function.
  3. Convert the Unix timestamp to the AWSDateTime format using the date function with the desired format.


Here is an example code snippet that demonstrates the conversion:

 1
 2
 3
 4
 5
 6
 7
 8
 9
10
11
// MySQL timestamp value
$mysqlTimestamp = "2021-10-15 12:25:10";

// Convert MySQL timestamp to Unix timestamp
$unixTimestamp = strtotime($mysqlTimestamp);

// Convert Unix timestamp to AWSDateTime format
$awsDateTime = date('Y-m-dTH:i:sZ', $unixTimestamp);

// Print the converted AWSDateTime value
echo $awsDateTime;


The output will be a string in the AWSDateTime format, such as "2021-10-15T12:25:10Z". Note that the AWSDateTime format includes the time zone indicator "Z" at the end, representing UTC time.
