How to get the records of the last two days from the current date in MySQL?

MySQLMySQLi Database

To get the records of the last days from the current date, you need to use DATE_SUB(). We will also use NOW() to get the current date. The syntax for the same is as follows

SELECT *FROM yourTableName
WHERE yourDateTimeColumnName BETWEEN DATE_SUB(DATE(NOW()), INTERVAL 2 DAY)
AND DATE_SUB(DATE(NOW()), INTERVAL 1 DAY);

Let us see an example

mysql> create table get2daysAgoDemo
   - > (
   - > Id int NOT NULL AUTO_INCREMENT PRIMARY KEY,
   - > Name varchar(20),
   - > PostDateTime datetime
   - > );
Query OK, 0 rows affected (1.70 sec)

Insert some records in the table using insert command.

The query is as follows

mysql> insert into get2daysAgoDemo(Name,PostDateTime) values('Larry',now());
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.68 sec)
mysql> insert into get2daysAgoDemo(Name,PostDateTime) values('Mike','2019-02-13');
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.12 sec)
mysql> insert into get2daysAgoDemo(Name,PostDateTime) values('Sam','2019-01-31');
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.15 sec)
mysql> insert into get2daysAgoDemo(Name,PostDateTime) values('Bob','2019-02-14');
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.29 sec)
mysql> insert into get2daysAgoDemo(Name,PostDateTime) values('David','2019-02-12');
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.21 sec)
mysql> insert into get2daysAgoDemo(Name,PostDateTime) values('Carol','2019-02-11');
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.22 sec)

Display all records from the table using select statement.

The query is as follows

mysql> select *from get2daysAgoDemo;

The following is the output

+----+-------+---------------------+
| Id | Name  | PostDateTime        |
+----+-------+---------------------+
|  1 | Larry | 2019-02-15 21:47:10 |
|  2 | Mike  | 2019-02-13 00:00:00 |
|  3 | Sam   | 2019-01-31 00:00:00 |
|  4 | Bob   | 2019-02-14 00:00:00 |
|  5 | David | 2019-02-12 00:00:00 |
|  6 | Carol | 2019-02-11 00:00:00 |
+----+-------+---------------------+
6 rows in set (0.00 sec)

Here is the query to get the records of the last two days. Let’s say the current date is 2019-02-15

mysql> select *from get2daysAgoDemo
   - > where PostDateTime between DATE_SUB(DATE(NOW()), INTERVAL 2 DAY)
   - > AND DATE_SUB(DATE(NOW()), INTERVAL 1 DAY);

The following is the output displaying the records from the last 2 days i.e. 13th and 14th February sine our current date is 15th February

+----+------+---------------------+
| Id | Name | PostDateTime        |
+----+------+---------------------+
|  2 | Mike | 2019-02-13 00:00:00 |
|  4 | Bob  | 2019-02-14 00:00:00 |
+----+------+---------------------+
2 rows in set (0.01 sec)
