    How to compare date in MySQL query

    Hi,

    I have
    Code:
     $date = date("Y-m-d");
    How do I get date comparison in MySQL query that looks something like this:
    Code:
    SELECT expired_date
    FROM subscription
    WHERE expired_date > '$date'
    Thanks

    Hi there,

    An easier/cleaner way to do this is as follows:
    Code MySQL:
    SELECT expired_date FROM subscription WHERE expired_date > CURRENT_TIMESTAMP;

    What Pullo has said above would be better but if you need to convert a string to date in MySQL look at the STR_TO_DATE function.

    pullo, using CURRENT_DATE instead of CURRENT_TIMESTAMP will more closely match the original requirements here
