Yii2 GrdView datetime format discrepancy

I’m using Kartik’s DetailView widget, but presumably this same issue would occur in the native Yii2 DetailView. In my table, I have a field named apointment_time. In one record in the database, the value stored in that field is 2017-05-16 09:00:00.

Within the column definitions for DetailView, I have the following two entries for the same attribute:



    'attribute' => 'apointment_time',

    'format'    => ['datetime', 'php:m/d/Y g:i a'],


However, when these two are displayed in DetailView, here’s what they display:

Appt Time 2017-05-16 09:00:00

Appt Time 05/16/2017 11:00 AM

I can’t understand why the formatted time displays as two hours later than the database time and unformatted time. I’m have not configured formatter() with any settings.

Any ideas on how I might get this to work correctly?

Timezone difference. What do you have set as language or timezone setting in formatter?

Yii formatter set time to defined timezone
