echo "<b>PHP Date compare example</b><br>";

$firstDate = date("Y-m-d");// First date which is current date

echo "First Date: ".$firstDate."<br>";

//We will be using strtotime function to convert date into time and the compare

$firstDateinTime=strtotime($firstDate);

//Create second date by adding 2 days

$secondDate = strtotime(date("Y-m-d", strtotime($firstDate)) . " +2 day");

echo "Second date: ".date('l dS \o\f F Y', $secondDate)."<br>";

//Create third date by substracting 2 days

$thirdDate = strtotime(date("Y-m-d", strtotime($firstDate)) . " -2 day");

echo "Third date: ".date('l dS \o\f F Y', $thirdDate)."<br>";

//Now compare these three days

if($firstDateinTime > $secondDate){

echo "<br>First Date($firstDateinTime) is greater then second date($secondDate).";

}else{

echo "<br>First Date($firstDateinTime) is smaller then second date($secondDate).";

}

if($firstDateinTime > $thirdDate){

echo "<br>First Date($firstDateinTime) is greater then third date($thirdDate).";

}else{

echo "<br>First Date($firstDateinTime) is smaller then third date($thirdDate).";
