Please Help me..

You can set up a cron job to run every day (or night) and have this query. If you can't have crons, you can run this script whenever the main page is loaded.

DELETE FROM Table
WHERE datecolumn < DATE(DATE_SUB(now() , INTERVAL 15 DAY))

Ok thanks all for the kind supports to me. I did it like this and admin will check his page daily. Then It will clear the data.
Thank you Thank you......

$mysqladd='xxxx'; // Address to the MySQL Server - Usually localhost but could be an IP address
$mysqluser='xxxx'; // Your MySQL UserName
$mysqlpass='xxxx'; // Your MySQL Password


//CONNECT TO MYSQL
$link=mysql_connect($mysqladd, $mysqluser, $mysqlpass) or die('Could not connect to database: ' . mysql_error());

//CONNECT TO DATABASE
mysql_select_db($databasename, $link) or die('Could not connect to table: ' . mysql_error());


$query="SELECT * FROM xxxx ORDER BY Timestamp DESC";
