Time Stamp.


Recommended Posts

Um....Hope I explain this good....Ok..here we go lol

I was wondering if someone could tell me what it the timestamp for 4 Days..

For example....if i didnt not want people who has not loggined in, in 4 days to get interest....(in there bank.)

Like what would the time stamp number be...

I also know for example 30 days would be like this...I only know because i found an example on here.

mysql_query("UPDATE users SET bank=bank+(bank/50) where bank>0 and time < (unix_timestamp()-2592000",$c);

but what would be the 4 days?

Or if you dont want to tell me thats fine..if you could point me to a place that explains how it works would be Great to..I kinda would like that better so I can learn it.

Re: Time Stamp.

I normally write my time stamp deals like this:


$time = time();

$last_on = // value from database :)

if ($last_on > $time - 60 * 60 * 24 * 4) { // we're good to go } else { // we're not good to go }


where the amount subtracted from time follows this pattern:


second * minutes(opt) * hours(opt) * days(opt)

The second, third, and fourth parts of that equation are optional.

For 6 hours: 60 * 60 * 6

I do it this way because it makes the code much more readable.
