getlastmod — Gets the time of the last page
UNIX timestamp of file date
Gets the time of the last page modification. This
function should be familiar to users of Apache-style
server-side includes (SSI). The function returns the last
modified date of the file from which it's called.
While the SSI directive returns the time in the default
system format, getlastmod() always returns the
time as a UNIX style time stamp. The time stamp can be
converted to human-readable dates and times using date() .
Example 329. Get time of last
$lastmod = getlastmod();
echo ("This page was last modified on ". date("l F Y", $lastmod). " at ". date("h:ia", $lastmod));
