    PHP, MySQL, Dates... disaster

    Ok, I seen loooodes of threads on this elsewhere but no proper answer:

    In a MySQL table there is a date in the format of yyyy-mm-dd. I want to add 30 days onto that. It qould probably be done by PHP, or my a MySQL table. But remember you must take into account the amount of days in each month etc. Its a hard problem to solve and as far as I've seen PHP or SQL dosn't have any functions to do it directly. Has anyone got any help at all?

    I for one can't tell what you are asking. May be a reason why you have no replies. Are you saying the date was entered wrongly?
    I'm using Windows 7 - you got a problem with that?

    Just add 30 days worth in seconds:
    30 days = 2, 592 ,000 seconds
    Theres a mySQL function to do that.

    Many thanks to egghead for the cool .sig

    $newdate = mktime(0, 0, 0, date("m") , date("d")+30, date("Y")); could solve your problem.
