Live Server Time Clock using PHP and Javascript………….

In this tutorial we are going to see how to set up PHP timestamp in javascript date object to simulate real time clock.
If we are going to make clock script only in php, for every second we need to make an ajax call to the server to get sever time to display on clicent side. It is completely bad scripting for making ajax call for every second to the server.
It good idea to assign php timestamp (server in time) to javascript variable, and run a javscript clock from that timestamp gives exact server time on the client side without making ajax call to the server.
