hello,
I have modified my /etc/bashrc file and I was wondering if there's a way of showing the time

instead of this
[(11:29 PM)][(root@server)] [(~)] $
to something like this
[(11:29 45 PM)][(root@server)] [(~)] $

this is what I have

    [ "$PS1" = "\\s-\\v\\\$ " ] && PS1="\[\033[1;32m\][\[\033[0;32m\](\[\033[1;37m\]\@\[\033[0;32m\])\[\033[1;32m\]]\[\033[1;32m\][\[\033[0;32m\](\[\033[1;37m\]\u\[\033[1;30m\]@\[\033[1;37m\]\h\[\033[0;32m\])\[\033[1;32m\]] \[\033[1;32m\][\[\033[0;32m\](\[\033[1;37m\]\w\[\033[0;32m\])\[\033[1;32m\]] \[\033[1;37m\]\$ "
