    resolved [RESOLVED] Unix TimeStamp / Mysql Timestamp and Time() Usage?

    Hi i think this is a simple question really might not be though, anyway im trying to use the following code to echo offline/crashed if the time stamp is over 5 minutes old but when i tried this code on a timestamp only 50 seconds old and one 18 hours old they both echoed offline. Did i do somthing wrong?

    Code:
    function convert_datetime($str) 
    {
    	list($date, $time) = explode(' ', $str);
    	list($year, $month, $day) = explode('-', $date);
    	list($hour, $minute, $second) = explode(':', $time);
    	
    	$timestamp = mktime($hour, $minute, $second, $month, $day, $year);
    	
    	return $timestamp;
    }
    			
    if (convert_datetime($GetCharsrow['cur_timestamp']) < (time() - 5))
    {
             echo "Crashed/Offline";
    }
    Any help is greatly appreciated.

    - Sam

    time()-5 gives the timestamp of 5 seconds ago. You want time()-300

    It is important to understand how you're inserting/getting your date-time field into/from the database. Because time() defaults to a unix timestamp, the timestamp that you get out of the database must be a unixtimestamp as well. The best way to do this is to make your query as below:

    Code:
    select UNIX_TIMESTAMP(cur_timestamp) from `mytable`;
    That also allows you to do a direct comparison to time, instead of running the result through another function:

    PHP Code:
    if($GetCharsrow['UNIX_TIMESTAMP(cur_timestamp)'] < (time()-300)) {
      echo 
    "Crashed/Offline";

    Thank you i will give it a go.

    EDIT: That didnt seem to work showed everything as offline even if it was updated only seconds ago.

    This is how im getting the data

    Code:
    $GetCharsQuery = "SELECT * FROM rrstats WHERE ID = '$USERid'";
    $GetChars = mysql_query($GetCharsQuery) or die ("didn't query");
    		
    while($GetCharsrow = mysql_fetch_array($GetChars))
    {  
           Here is like a big long series of echos including the one i put in the first post.
    }
    EDIT2: ahhh nevermind i got it to work thanks for your help again.
