Use: to_formatted_s(format = :default)

for example commentDate.to_formatted_s(:db)

As per Rails docs:

to_formatted_s(format = :default)

Convert to a formatted string - see DATE_FORMATS for predefined
formats. You can also add your own formats to the DATE_FORMATS
constant and use them with this method.

This method is also aliased as to_s.
Examples:

date = Date.new(2007, 11, 10) # => Sat, 10 Nov 2007

date.to_formatted_s(:db) # => “2007-11-10”
date.to_s(:db) # => “2007-11-10”

date.to_formatted_s(:short) # => “10 Nov”
date.to_formatted_s(:long) # => “November 10, 2007”
date.to_formatted_s(:long_ordinal) # => “November 10th, 2007”
date.to_formatted_s(:rfc822) # => “10 Nov 2007”
