Its a bit of a sever difference problem. On my local dev. server Im using:
<?php print strtotime($date." UCT"); ?>
The above code gives me the correct timestamp for my timezone. HOWEVER, the same code returns false on the live server.
The live server has a lower version of php installed and I imagine that to be the problem.
What I'm looking for is an alternative to the above line of code.
I could use the normal strototime without the ." UCT" part and add in 2hours but would rather have PHP handle timezones.
$date looks like this: 2011-05-25 05:48:00
