XF 1.4 Precise time of message being posted?


As part of a police enquiry relating to the safety of one of my forum's members I've been asked if I can supply to the time, to the second, that a message was posted on my forum.

Does anyone know if there's a way of finding this out, either in the normal admin capacity or by accessing the database?

Thanks in advance!

You can do it with a query using:
FROM xf_post
WHERE post_id = 1
Change the post_id (1) to the actual post.

The output is in the format yyyy-mm-dd hh:mm:ss
