I Have a string that is equal to a date, represented as the number of milliseconds since the Unix epoch.

I am trying to output it into d-m-Y.

The string I was given was "1227643821310", and I am told that the result should be equal to 2-12-2008, but I keep getting a result of 25-11-2008

My code is as follows:

$mil = 1227643821310;
$seconds = $mil / 1000;
echo date("d-m-Y", $seconds);

Any ideas as to why this might be?



You are already doing it right, 1227643821 is simply not 02-12-2008, it is indeed 25-11-2008.

I should have thought of this earlier...easiest way would be to use the MySQL TIME() function to only select the time in the first place.

Just Try this Sample code:-

import java.text.DateFormat;
import java.text.SimpleDateFormat;
import java.util.Calendar;

public class Test {

 * Main Method
public static void main(String[] args) {
    System.out.println(getDate(82233213123L, "dd/MM/yyyy hh:mm:ss.SSS"));

 * Return date in specified format.
 * @param milliSeconds Date in milliseconds
 * @param dateFormat Date format 
 * @return String representing date in specified format
public static String getDate(long milliSeconds, String dateFormat)
    // Create a DateFormatter object for displaying date in specified format.
    SimpleDateFormat formatter = new SimpleDateFormat(dateFormat);

    // Create a calendar object that will convert the date and time value in milliseconds to date. 
     Calendar calendar = Calendar.getInstance();
     return formatter.format(calendar.getTime());

I hope this help...

print date('H:i');
$var = date('H:i');

Should do it, for the current time. Use a lower case h for 12 hour clock instead of 24 hour.

More date time formats listed here.

Start by converting your milliseconds to a TimeSpan:

var time = TimeSpan.FromMilliseconds(milliseconds);

Now, in .NET 4 you can call .ToString() with a format string argument. See

In previous versions of .NET, you'll have to manually construct the formatted string from the TimeSpan's properties.
