Hi

I have this time stamp:
20051107065122

I'm trying to parse it into something like this:
Nov 07 2005, 06:51:22

I've tried the following:

echo date("M d Y H:i:s", "20051107065122" ); 
echo gmdate("M d Y H:i:s", "20051107065122" )); 


either of the above give me:
Jan 19 2038 03:14:07



what am I doing wrong?[code=auto:0]

The following timestamp 20051107065122 is an invalid timestamp. As a timestamp is the number secounds passed since January 1 1970 00:00:00 GMT. So in order to get the timestamp of Nov 07 2005, 06:51:22 you will want to use strtotime to convert tat date into a timestamp like so:
<?php

$date = strtotime("Nov 07 2005, 06:51:22");
echo $date . '<br />';
echo date("M d Y H:i:s", $date);

?>
