I have a problem with date,

I have 2 variables:
$timestamp = mktime(0,0,0,date("m"),date("d"),date("Y"));
and a $date which is 11-22 05:50:00

I am trying to find how many days between them? I tried below:

<?php echo "($timestamp - $date)"; ?> But this is giving the strings like below:

11958804002007 - 11-22 05:50:00

How can I find how many days between them?

Thank you,

$timestamp = mktime(0,0,0,date("m"),date("d"),date("Y"));

$date = "11-22 05:50:00";

$date = strtotime(date("Y")."-".$date);

$sec =  $timestamp - $date;


$days = ceil($sec / 86400);

print $days;

$timestamp = mktime(0,0,0,date("m"),date("d"),date("Y"));
$unc = strtotime($date);
$days = number_format($timestamp - $unc);

Sorry steelseth12,

The date was $date = "2007-11-22 05:50:00"; my mistake.

So what it should be the rest?

In that case we dont need to add the year so ...

$timestamp = mktime(0,0,0,date("m"),date("d"),date("Y"));

$date = "2007-11-22 05:50:00";

$date = strtotime($date);

$sec =  $timestamp - $date;


$days = ceil($sec / 86400);

print $days;
