check db date with current date


Recommended Posts


I have database stored a field of date. I want to check if the date in the DB field is the same as the current date, how to do it?


$oracle = mysqli_real_escape_string($con, $_POST['oracle']);
$query 	= mysqli_query($con, "SELECT indate FROM staff WHERE OracleID ='$oracle'");
$row	= mysqli_fetch_array($query);
$num_row = mysqli_num_rows($query);
	if ($num_row > 0) 
		$curdate = date();
		if ($row['indate'] !== $curdate)
			$query1=mysqli_query($con, "update staff set ClockedIn = 0, ClockedOut = 0 where OracleID='$session_id'")or die('Error In Session');

You should really check the num-rows value before you attempt to do a fetch.  Doesn't that make more sense?  Perhaps you should also check that the query call itself succeeded before doing that also.  Something like:

	if (query succeeded)
	     if (num_rows test)
	        (process results)
