Convert Seconds Into Minutes And Hours Using PHP


To Convert Seconds It Takes Only two Steps:-

  1. Make a PHP file and define markup and scripting
  2. Make a CSS file and define styling


Step 1.Make a PHP file and define markup and scripting

We make a PHP file and save it with a name convert.php

<?php
if(isset($_POST['convert_seconds']))
{
 $time=$_POST['time'];
 $unit=$_POST['convert_unit'];
 if($unit == "Minutes")
 {
  $time = round($time / 60,4) . 'Min';
 }
 if($unit == "Hours")
 {
  $time = round($time / 60 / 60,4) . 'Hours';	
 }
}
?>

<html>
<head>
<link type="text/css" rel="stylesheet" href="convert_style.css"/>
</head>
<body>
<div id="wrapper">

<div id="convert_div">
 <form method="post"action="">
  <input type="text" name="time" placeholder="Enter Seconds">
  <select name="convert_unit">
   <option>Minutes</option>
   <option>Hours</option>
  </select>
  <br>
  <input type="submit" name="convert_seconds" value="Convert Seconds">
 </form>
 <p><?php echo $time;?></p>
</div>

</div>
</body>
</html>

In this step we create a form for user to enter seconds and select which unit he wants seconds to convert and after submitting the form we get the value and convert unit and convert seconds to desirable unit then display the time.You may also like convert HTML into PDF.

body
{
 margin:0 auto;
 padding:0px;
 text-align:center;
 width:100%;
 font-family: "Myriad Pro","Helvetica Neue",Helvetica,Arial,Sans-Serif;
 background-color:#F2F2F2;

#wrapper h1 p
{

}
#convert_div input[type="text"]
{

 height:55px;
 padding-left:10px;
 font-size:18px;
 margin-bottom:15px;
 color:#424242;

 font-weight:bold;
 background-color:#6E6E6E;
