How can I able to sort a MySQL table by two columns?

What I need are the articles sorted by the highest ratings first, then the most recent date. As an example, this would be a sample output (left # is the rating, then the article title, then the article date)

50 | This article rocks          | Feb 4, 2009

35 | This article is pretty good | Feb 1, 2009

5  | This Article isn't so hot   | Jan 25, 2009

The relevant SQL I'm using is:

 ORDER BY article_rating, article_time DESC

I can be able to sort it by one or the other, but not the both.

The default sorting will be the ascending, you would be needing to add the keyword DESC to both your orders:

ORDER BY article_rating DESC, article_time DESC
