datetime not working

Recommended Posts

I have read through php.net and even the datetime help on phpfreaks, all of which tell me this is the correct format for my datetime... This is what is in the mysql database 2006-03-14 15:04:24 in a datetime field, called datetime... this is what I am using to show it, $datetime = date("F j, Y, g:i A", $row[datetime]); Can anyone give me a hint as to what I am doing wrong? It outputs December 31, 1969, 7:33 PM. Here's my code...

include_once "../cgi-bin/connection.php";
$query = mysql_query("SELECT * FROM paybycheck WHERE paid = '0' ORDER BY datetime DESC");
    while ($row  =  mysql_fetch_array($query))    {
    $datetime = date("F j, Y, g:i A", $row[datetime]);
echo '<a href="paidbycheck.php?id=', $row[id], '">', $datetime . '     ' . $row[name] . '     ' . $row[city] . '     ' . $row[state], '</a><p>';

The date() function needs it's second parameter to be an integer. Use the strtotime() function to convert a string to an integer.
[code]<?php $datetime = date("F j, Y, g:i A", strtotime($row[datetime])); ?>[/code]
