I have a table with a this records:
<!-- Table user_activity --> <user_activity> <id>1</id> <event>LOGIN</event> <username>firstname.lastname@example.org</username> <domain>domain.com</domain> <remote_address>ip_address</remote_address> <date>2008-05-23 20:19:36</date> <comments></comments> </user_activity>
I am trying to query the DB to get the total results of activity PER DAY. This is my query (which obviously doesn't work):
SELECT date, COUNT(*) FROM `user_activity` WHERE `event` LIKE "LOGIN" AND `date` LIKE "2008-05%" GROUP BY date
Since the date field has also a hour timestamp, I get thousands of results with count 1.
Is there any way to group the results only by the first 10 characters (and omit the time of day)?
