"6/8/2013 1:02:37 AM" converted to unix timestamp


Recommended Posts

Don't store your dates as unix timestamps - store them as type DATETIME, format "yyyy-mm-dd hh:ii:ss"

Since we still don't have images on mobile view I will have to "like" this via a quote. *liked*

$d = '6/8/2013 1:01:27 PM';

list($m, $d, $y, $h, $i, $s, $a) = sscanf($d, '%d/%d/%d %d:%d:%d %s');

echo sprintf('%4d-%02d-%02d %02d:%02d:%02d', $y, $m, $d, $a=='AM'?$h:$h+12, $i, $s);  //--> 2013-06-08 13:01:27



I tried this and it seems to work fine, thank you.


Need I worry about varying lengths breaking this? If I'm understanding your code correctly, it searches for forward slashes and semi-colons to seperate the year, month, day, etc. I'll do some testing (like throwing 06/08/2013 at it instead of 6/8/2013), but thought I'd ask too.
