date from timestamp


Recommended Posts


I have a table field that has the full timestamp (date and time), I want to select records from DB but after checking the date part only from the timestamp.


2020-3-10 10:15:00 ---- i want to check if current date is equal to the date part which in this case it is the same.

I tried this but it is not getting the date from the timestamp:

$testDate = date($row2['ClockingInDate']);
$curdate = date("Y-m-d");

I am still getting the full date and time for the first variable!

I tried a better one but i am getting the default value of 1970:

$testDate= date('Y-m-d',$row2['ClockingInDate']);
$curdate = date("Y-m-d");

testDate is getting the default value of 1970...why is that?

Show us your query.  The way I would do this would be to use a mysql function to only select the yyyy-mm-dd portion of the timestamp and compare it (in the where clause) to the exact yyyy-mm-dd value you want to find.  To be clear - I would do this IN the query statement itself.
