I need the current time then I call the php function –
time() and get the current Unix timestamp. Then function
time() returns the second measured in the number of seconds since the Unix Epoch (January 1 1970 00:00:00 GMT). Say for, in my website users can register for free for one year. I need to calculate an account expiration time after one year. How can I calculate the expiration time. I need to add one year with the account creation time. We may get the the date and time of account expiration using following code.
[sourcecode language=”php”]$expiration = date( ‘Y-m-d H:i:s’, time() + (365 * 24 * 60 * 60) );[/sourcecode]
I have another easy solution. See bellow.
[sourcecode language=”php”]$expiration = date(‘Y-m-d H:i:s’, strtotime( ‘now + 1 year’ ) );[/sourcecode]
Everyone knows PHP is a flexible language. In the second statement, it seems I am talking with php. ha ha ha
