Convert NOW() into PHP timestamp

How do I convert a field entered into a Mysql database using NOW() into
a format that can be manipulated with PHP's strftime() function?

I'm pulling my hair out looking for a solution. Thank you kindly.

If your database column is a datetime type (probably is, since you used
NOW() to poplulate it), just select it as follows:

SELECT UNIX_TIMESTAMP(myCol)
FROM myTable

Use the result (which will be the time represented in UNIX timestamp
format) as the second parameter to strftime().
