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?

Understanding Web Applications

Without even knowing it, most of us are using web applications on a daily basis. Gmail and Yahoo email, Twitter, Facebook, and eBay are used by most of us daily—and they are web applications. We often confuse these web applications tools for websites.  So, what is the difference?

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;
