"24 hours ago" in Unix - El Forum - 01-31-2010

I need to be able to get what the date and time would have been 24 hours from the current time displayed in a unix. How do I do this in code igniter?

Just a little 3rd grade math.

Code:
$one_day_ago = time() - (60 * 60 * 24);

Or, for the lazy:

Code:
$yesterday = strtotime("24 hours ago");

strtotime('-1d') might work too.
