I’ve been testing some dates between AS3 and PHP. I want to upload them into a database so formating into mySQL format too. To make it straightforward I passed milliseconds between AS3 and PHP. My fun started when I tried to convert it to a date in PHP 5.3.29
The date I stared with in AS3: Fri Oct 28 2016 17:45:13 (my local time)
In milliseconds thats: 1477669513556
My test code:
echo "Milliseconds: " .$testDate ."\n";
echo "DATE: " .date('Y-m-d H:i:s', $testDate) ."\n";
The result I got was
DATE: 1976-05-12 16:42:12
Can someone kindly explain to me where I or PHP are going wrong???
The doc for
time() says "Returns the current time measured in the number of seconds since the Unix Epoch (January 1 1970 00:00:00 GMT). ", so if you’re passing in milliseconds to a function that expects a time based on the number of seconds, isn’t that going to cause a problem?
The way I usually look at translating value representations is to compare the two values - so what happens if you display the raw value of
time() for the date/time example you use above?
@droopsnoot Thanks for your input, I’ve not been using time() but Doh! you were right… I was so rapped up in coding that I negated to realise that date() in PHP requires seconds…what a stupid oversite… Thanks
I saw that you don’t use
time() directly, but the second parameter of the
date() function is a
time() value, that’s what I was getting at. Glad it’s helped.
