I need to be able to set the startDate/time and enddate/time and return if we are currently in that timeframe.  This is for a system maintenance between dateA at 4:00p to dateB at 12:00a.  Want to redirect user to a temp page.

I think it would go something like:

startDate:
startTime:
endDate:
endTime:

process and return true if currently in between start and end, or return false.

$starttime = ;// unix timestamp format
$enddtime = ;// unix timestamp format
$currenttime = time();
if (($currenttime > $starttime) && ($currenttime < $endtime)) {
   header("location: temppage.php"); exit;
}
// normal page code here.

Please, take the time and do some research and find out how much it would have cost you to get your help from a decent paid-for source. A "roll-of-the-dice" freelancer will charge you $5-$15/hr. A decent entry level freelancer will charge you around $15-30/hr. A professional will charge you anywhere from $50-$100/hr. An agency will charge anywhere from $100-$250/hr. Think about all this when soliciting for help here. Think about how much money you are making from the work you are asking for help on. No, we do not expect you to pay for the help given here, but donating a few bucks is a fraction of the cost of what you would have paid, shows your appreciation, helps motivate people to keep offering help without the pricetag, and helps make this a higher quality free-help community :)
