Error when updating Joomla DB

I'm trying to customize a Joomla script to add the current date when updating a table. I've added the following lines to my code which is causing an error.

$post_date = date('c');

".$db->nameQuote('post_date')."='".$db->Quote($post_date)."'

And the whole update looks like this:

  function save($job) {
      $post_date = date('c');
        $db =& $this->getDBO();
            $this->_query = "UPDATE ".$db->nameQuote('#__jobboard_jobs')."
                     SET ".$db->nameQuote('post_date')."='".$db->Quote($post_date)."'
                 , ".$db->nameQuote('job_title')."=".$db->Quote($job->job_title)."
                     , ".$db->nameQuote('expiry_date')."='".$job->expiry_date."'
                     , ".$db->nameQuote('job_type')." =".$db->Quote($job->job_type)."
                     , ".$db->nameQuote('category')." =".$db->Quote($job->category)."
                     , ".$db->nameQuote('career_level')." =".$db->Quote($job->career_level)."
                     , ".$db->nameQuote('education')." =".$db->Quote($job->education_level)."
                     , ".$db->nameQuote('positions')." =".$db->Quote($job->positions)."
                     , ".$db->nameQuote('country')." =".$db->Quote($job->country_name)."
                     , ".$db->nameQuote('department')." =".$db->Quote($job->department)."
                     , ".$db->nameQuote('published')." =".$db->Quote($job->published)."
                     , ".$db->nameQuote('city')." =".$db->Quote($job->city)."
                     , ".$db->nameQuote('salary')." =".$db->Quote($job->salary)."
                     , ".$db->nameQuote('description')." =".$db->Quote($job->job_description)."
                     , ".$db->nameQuote('duties')." =".$db->Quote($job->duties)."
                     , ".$db->nameQuote('job_tags')." =".$db->Quote($job->job_tags)."

                 WHERE  ".$db->nameQuote('id')."=".intval($job->id);
        $db->setQuery($this->_query);
        return $db->query();
    }




If I change $post_date = date('c');    to      $post_date = date();
I don't get the error, but my field is set to Tue, 30 Nov 1999 instead of the current date.


Any idea what I am doing wrong?

I've attached my full code below. Thanks.

Hi,

Try using the built in mysql NOW() value which put's in the current timestamp.

 
function save($job) {
	$post_date = date();
        $db =& $this->getDBO();
		$this->_query = "UPDATE ".$db->nameQuote('#__jobboard_jobs')."
                     SET ".$db->nameQuote('post_date')."= NOW()
		     , ".$db->nameQuote('job_title')."=".$db->Quote($job->job_title)."
                     , ".$db->nameQuote('expiry_date')."='".$job->expiry_date."'
                     , ".$db->nameQuote('job_type')." =".$db->Quote($job->job_type)."
                     , ".$db->nameQuote('category')." =".$db->Quote($job->category)."
                     , ".$db->nameQuote('career_level')." =".$db->Quote($job->career_level)."
                     , ".$db->nameQuote('education')." =".$db->Quote($job->education_level)."
                     , ".$db->nameQuote('positions')." =".$db->Quote($job->positions)."
                     , ".$db->nameQuote('country')." =".$db->Quote($job->country_name)."

You might need to fiddle around with the quotes a little.
