I searched the site already to see if this question has been addressed already and found no results, but if it has then I appologize and if you can link me to that thread I'll refer to that to solve my problem.
I am trying to save a date in MySQL using PHP and it doesn't seem to be working. The field in MySQL is the "date" type and when I read data from that field it shows as 0000-00-00, so I have tried saving the data as 2009-09-24 for example, but it doesn't seem to work. I have tried saving it with quotations to make it a string, and without quotations and I still can't seem to figure it out.
Does anyone know how I can format the date propely so I can save it in MySQL?
Thank you very much!
I found the solution for this. Apparently I had the format correct, but I was trying to use a PHP command that wasn't working to convert it into a date. After I stopped trying to convert it, it seemed to save properly.
