Hello
Below is the code by which I trying to get AGE of students as on 31-March of current year in this format -> 6 years, 3 months, 14 days. But I am getting differnece in Days. I checked the age from this site http://www.calculator.net/age-calculator.html
Example 1. 19-12-2007 should display 6 years 3 months 12 days
Where as my code displaying - 6 Years , 3 Months , 13 Days

Example 2. 29-06-2009 should display 4 years 9 months 2 days
Where as my code displaying - 4 Years , 9 Months , 6 Days

Here is the code -

<?php
function dt_wrd($date)
{

$date1 = $date;
$date2 = "31-03-".date('Y');

$diff = abs(strtotime($date2) - strtotime($date1));

$years = floor($diff / (365*60*60*24));
$months = floor(($diff - $years * 365*60*60*24) / (30*60*60*24));
$days = floor(($diff - $years * 365*60*60*24 - $months*30*60*60*24)/ (60*60*24));

$ys="s";
$ms="s";
$ds="s";

if($months=="1" ||$months=="0" )
{
    $ms="";
}
if($years=="1" ||$years=="0" )
{
    $ys="";
}
if($days=="1" ||$days=="0" )
{
    $ds="";
}

echo "$years Year$ys , $months Month$ms , $days Day$ds";
}

$date1='29-06-2009';//$_GET['dob'];
dt_wrd($date1);

?>

Might be asking a stupid question here, but, why is this in server-side? Since, I'm pretty sure it goes off the time and date set in the server, over what is on the local machine. Since it's a day out, probably your problem is that you're not setting a default timezone, whereas the website you gave MAY be using Javascript which is a client-side and reads from your actual machine. I'd check this.

@phorce Its not stupid question, what I think you did not saw the examples timezone can effect the difference 1day or 2days but see the example no.2 it has 4 days difference

Hi, have you considered the DateTime library?

<?php

    #$dob = $_GET['dob'];
    $dob = '29-06-2009';

    $at_day = '31-03-'.date('Y');
    $dt_dob = new DateTime($dob);
    $dt_now = new DateTime($at_day);

    echo "<pre>";
    print_r($dt_now->diff($dt_dob));
    echo "</pre>";

Outputs:

DateInterval Object
(
    [y] => 4
    [m] => 9
    [d] => 2
    [h] => 0
    [i] => 0
    [s] => 0
    [invert] => 1
    [days] => 1736
)

As second argument you can set the timezone of each date and get the differences. For example:

<?php

    #$dob = $_GET['dob'];
    $dob = '29-06-2009';

    $at_day = '31-03-'.date('Y');
    $dt_dob = new DateTime($dob, new DateTimeZone('America/Los_Angeles'));
    $dt_now = new DateTime($at_day, new DateTimeZone('Europe/Rome'));

    echo "<pre>";
    print_r($dt_now->diff($dt_dob));
    echo "</pre>";

With two different timezones Los Angeles and Rome you get a different result:

DateInterval Object
(
    [y] => 4
    [m] => 9
    [d] => 1
    [h] => 15
    [i] => 0
    [s] => 0
    [invert] => 1
    [days] => 1735
)

Note: you should save everything to UTC and convert it to the local time when needed.

Use DateTime as suggested. NEVER convert dates with multiples of years, days, hours etc. Leap years and daylight saving really make a mess of these.

The datetime object will take the TZ of the server, unless you set it otherwise.
