Hey guys,

I was wondering how I could access the server time with php. I want to get it into a variable so I can time stamp messages being sent user to user.


Thanks,
Matt

Hi hep516,

There are ton of functions in PHP to deal with time.  Start here:

http://us3.php.net/time

and if that isn't quite what you want, the rest of the functions are on the left of the page.

No problem.  The php.net pages usually have code examples to convert things.
