MySQL query – recent users

Occasionally I post some MySQL queries on Moodle.org I’ve found useful administering Moodle sites.

Here’s a nice simple query, but very useful for a quick check on who’s been logging into your site recently.

SELECT id,username,FROM_UNIXTIME(`lastlogin`) AS days
 FROM `prefix_user`

If you don’t know how to use a query like this in your Moodle site don’t worry, I’m gong to be posting some hints and tips on how to use MySQL queries with Moodle over the coming months.  And if you DO know how to query your database, you can use and easily adapt this query smile

One thought on “MySQL query – recent users

  • I like to think that an Moodle admin can have a pedagogical cap without special skill in this strange language 😉 ….Provided that to have a good network engineer in his team or a webmaster competent …Or a good external partner as an Moodle Partner 🙂
