Comparing two dates in PHP

PHPServer Side ProgrammingProgramming

To compare two dates in PHP, the code is as follows. Here, we have used the equality operator to compare dates −

Example

 Live Demo

<?php
   $dateOne = "2019-10-30";
   $dateTwo = "2019-10-30";
   echo "Date1 = $dateOne";
   echo "\nDate2 = $dateTwo";
   if ($dateOne == $dateTwo)
      echo "\nBoth the dates are equal!";
   else
      echo "Both the dates are different!";
?>

Output

This will produce the following output−

Date1 = 2019-10-30
Date2 = 2019-10-30
Both the dates are equal!

Example

Let us now see another example−

 Live Demo

<?php
   $dateOne = "2019-11-08";
   $dateTwo = "2018-08-10";
   echo "Date1 = $dateOne";
   echo "\nDate2 = $dateTwo";
   if ($dateOne < $dateTwo)
      echo "\nDateTwo is the latest date!";
   else
      echo "\nDateOne is the latest date!";
?>

Output

This will produce the following output−

Date1 = 2019-11-08
Date2 = 2018-08-10
DateOne is the latest date!
