i would suggest save UNIX timestamp in the db and then run date time functions to make it look like a date. it makes life much easier and faster for me.
for that you will need to have a mysql field INT(11) and from php you will send
then you can easily run date() function to display it, for example
if you pick $yourSavedTs from db then you could do
echo date("F j, Y, g:i a",$yourSavedTs);
