Validating date and finding date parts from a date string →
We need to check the user entered date value in any web page before using in our script. For this php built in date function checkdate can be used. This function returns true if the date is a valid date. This function also takes care of leap years and other date restrictions.
Drop down list box for date month selection →
It is easy for a user to select month, date etc from a drop down list box than entering them in a text box. Here the data entered by the user will be under control as from a given options the user has to select one.
The object oriented features are added from PHP 5 onwards. So several date functions can be used but many such objects were supported from PHP5.3 onwards so check your server PHP version to know before using all these features.

how to store the system date and time into the mysql database.
ei im sulik from the Philippines, could someone help me? i dont know why my date function produces wrong results? my system time is fine and correct. but when i echo the date function, something like this... date("H:i:s"); it outputted wrong result which is 8 hours late? date function base its time from the server not from the system time right? if it's that's the case then how can i set my server time? im using wamp server by the way. Replies for my long time problem would be much appreciated. tnxs in advance.
There is a time adjustment setting to take care of global time zones, that is inside your PHP.ini file. This setting will display the time by reading the server time and then adding the time zone adjustment. You need to change this setting.
tnxs for the reply smo. i tried the php.ini file and set date.timezone = Asia/Manila but nothing happens and produces wrong 8 hours late results. so ive searched the net and found out that there is a code that you can explicitly set the timezone, this is the code.. date_default_timezone_set('Asia/Manila'); and after adding this code the date function outputs correct results... I dont know why it doesn't work on the php.ini file. ive done many php.ini setting in the past and this is the first time that i encounter some problems. Any ideas?
