Looking at the structure of xoops.users shows the users_regdate as int(10),
and phpnuke.users is varchar(20).
This means that phpnuke.users would need to be ||UNIX_TIMESTAMP(). And, I see
in the MySQL book (2nd ed., pg 828) that UNIX_TIMESTAMP works with date-time
or timestamp format of ccyymmdd or yymmdd, which is different than the May 1,
Should I assume that I need to run some type of script against that column of
data? If so, how do I do it?
