Firstly, I assume you mean "Y-m-j H:i:s" for the date format.

To get the difference between 2 time strings :


// orginal time strings
$firstTime="2002-04-19 13:49:00";
$lastTime="2002-04-19 14:00:00";

// convert to unix timestamps

// perform subtraction to get the difference (in seconds) between times

//echo out the difference
printf ("Difference is %d seconds",$timeDiff);
