So I used the
get_dir_file_info function of Codeigniter to get the file details inside a directory
The function returns an array like this:
name: "file.sql" server_path: "filepath\file.sql" size: 22055 date: 1581558753 relative_path: "filepath/"
I can’t understand the date returned by the function. How do I convert it to a readable date?
use just a simple
date() function like given below:
echo date("Y-m-d H:i:s", 1581558753);
This is a UNIX timestamp. It is the number of seconds that have elapsed since the Unix epoch, that is the time 00:00:00 UTC on 1 January 1970, minus leap seconds. There are many ways to convert this to an ordinary date or vice versa.
For converting UNIX time to common date:
date("Y/m/d H:i:s" , 1581558753); //Result=>2020/02/13 1:52:33
For converting date to UNIX timestamp:
strtotime("3 October 2005"); //Result =>1128297600
mktime(0,0,0,10,3,2005); //Result =>1128297600
