Convert Time String to DATETIME field


What is the best way to convert a time like this:

Code:
Sep 21 12:34:56 2006
To something that MySQL can understand like a DATETIME field? Thanks.

Actually, you've a got a whole BUNCH of different options. Especially if you're calling MySQL from PHP.

Thanks for the reference. Here is what I ended up using:

Code:
str_to_date('Sep 21 12:34:56 2006','%b %e %T %Y')
Thanks again
