Answer

Just put a “01-” in front of your value to make it a valid date.

$value = "08-2022";
echo date('M-Y',strtotime('01-'.$value));
//Aug-2022

try self: https://3v4l.org/ZiB70

or with DateTime:

$value = "08-2022";
echo date_create_from_format('!m-Y',$value)->format('M-Y');

Important NOTE:

That ! in the format is important for this case and is unfortunately missing in many examples for date_create_from_format. If that ! missing then the current day is set as the day. If this happens on the 31st of a month and value is, for example, ’06-2022′ then a date ’31-06-2022′ is generated which is then reported as 01-07-2022. With the ! the day is set to 1 and the time to 00:00.
