Is this what you mean?

putenv("TZ=Europe/London"); // Set to your timezone (server may be in a different zone).
$now_datetime = date("Y-m-d-H-i-s", time()); // eg. 2012-12-09-03-34-25

What is the format of the field you want to store the value into?

PHP functions can not be parsed within a double quoted string (as far as I know). Assign a value to a variable first and then use this variable in a query.

$temp_time = date('Y-m-d H:i:s',time());

$sql = mysql_query("INSERT INTO item
(image_user_name, image_folder_name, main_category, sub_category, price, description, features, key_words, sold, item_add_date)
VALUES('$image_user_name_p', '$image_folder_name','$main_category_p','$sub_category_p',
'$price_p','$description_p','$feature_p','$key_word_p', '0' , '$temp_time')")
or die(mysql_error()); //date() //date,timestamp
