I want to store the current date generated from PHP into MongoDB collection as an ISO date formate.


However I am not able to generate such Kind of date in php which will be stored in MongoDB as an ISODate format.

This is what I ve done.

 $d = new MongoDate(time());
 echo $d;

and it is outputting something like,

0.00000000 1353305590

which is not the format I need. How to do this?

    You could run the __toString function, or use the sec field

    __toString will return a timestamp in usecs, which you can pass to date() after separating the seconds from milliseconds - read here:

    OR, I personally prefer to have mongodb return just the seconds, which can be plugged directly into date() - read here:

    Also, if you're generating a MongoDate() for right now, you don't need to specify time();

    In order to return an isodate, you need to do this:

    echo date(DATE_ISO8601, (new MongoDate())->sec);


    $exampleDate = new MongoDate();
    echo date(DATE_ISO8601, $exampleDate->sec);

    EDIT: To save your ISO date, you need to do the following:

    $mongoDateObject = new MongoDate(strtotime("2012-11-02T08:40:12.569Z"));

    For clarity, let's consider the following use case:

    You need to convert a string in the simplified extended ISO 8601 format (e.g. returned by Javascript's Date.prototype.toISOString()) to and from PHP's MongoDate object, while preserving maximum precision during conversion.

    In this format, the string is always 24 characters long: YYYY-MM-DDTHH:mm:ss.sssZ. The timezone is always zero UTC offset, as denoted by the suffix Z.

    To keep milliseconds, we'll have to leverage PHP's DateTime object.

    From string to MongoDate:

    $stringDt =  "2015-10-07T14:28:41.545Z";

    Method 1 (using date_create_from_format):

    $phpDt = date_create_from_format('Y-m-d\TH:i:s.uP', $stringDt);
    $MongoDt = new \MongoDate($phpDt->getTimestamp(), $phpDt->format('u'));

    Method 2 (using strtotime):

    $MongoDt= new \MongoDate(strtotime ($stringDt),
       1000*intval(substr($stringDt, -4, 3)) // cut msec portion, convert msec to usec

    From MongoDate to string:

    $MongoDt = new \MongoDate(); // let's take now for example
    $stringDt =
          (new \DateTime())
           ->setTimeZone(new \DateTimeZone('UTC'))
       0, -5)  // taking the beginning of DateTime::ISO8601-formatted string
       .sprintf('.%03dZ', $MongoDt->usec / 1000); // adding msec portion, converting usec to msec

    Hope this helps.

    convert ISO date time in UTC date time here :
    $timestamp = $quicky_created_date->__toString(); //ISO DATE Return form mongo database
    $utcdatetime = new MongoDB\BSON\UTCDateTime($timestamp);
    $datetime = $utcdatetime->toDateTime();
    $time = strtotime($dateInUTC.' UTC');
    $dateInLocal = date("d M Y", $time);
    echo $dateInLocal; die;
