View Full Version : Getting the unix time from a date?

06-19-2005, 06:58 PM
Hey guys.. is there anyway I could get the unix time (time()) from a date like this for example: June 28, 2005 10pm ET or something similar at least?

I've looked into mktime() but not sure if I really understand it all or if this is what it is for?

Check into strtotime() (http://us4.php.net/manual/en/function.strtotime.php).

Is there a similar function to get a MYSQL timestamp (YYYYMMDDHHMMSS) from a string such as "June 28, 2005 10pm ET"?

date("YmdHis",strtotime("June 28, 2005 10pm ET"));
