Tips and Notes

Note: The result of this function are cached. Use clearstatcache() to clear the cache.

Note: Some Unix systems have access time updates disabled, because this function reduces performance for applications that regularly accesses a large number of files.

<?php
echo fileatime("test.txt");
echo "<br />";
echo "Last access: ".date("F d Y H:i:s.",fileatime("test.txt"));
?>

The output of the code above could be:
