date (year) messed up, formate incorrect (10 posts)

    I just installed a fresh copy of wp. In looking through the settings for the date format, I have a Y for the year, but it shows up like this:

    Date Format January 30, 8632884266970

    I tried doing lowercase Y, it still displays that long string of numbers. I'm baffled. Any ideas?

    Its everywhere... settings-general (in admin of wordpress) when I go to create a page or post, it shows up like this: 8461085575090 in the year box.

    F j, Y

    Or go to your database:

    wp-options table. Search this entry: option_name = date_format and change the value there.. Or provide an example link here..

    That is what I have: F j, Y What I'm saying is I did a default install, and the year is showing up as a bunch of numbers. I'm not sure what kind of link I can provide.

    Hi there,

    After spending hours on trying to solve this, I killed off my database files on my server more than once. I then installed phpMyAdmin and figured out how to get that running. Once that was done I re-installed WordPress and the dates were ok. I'm not even sure if phpmyadmin was the solution or not. Thanks for getting back to me and good luck.
