"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

You can use 'strtotime' http://php.net/manual/en/function.strtotime.php along with 'date' to get your dates in the proper format.  http://php.net/manual/en/function.date.php

$timestamp = strtotime('Wed, 06 May 2015 17:35:32');
$today = date("Y-m-d H:i:s",$timestamp);         // (the MySQL DATETIME format)
