Edited 5 Years Ago by Ezzaral: Added code tags. Please use them to format all code that you post.

Use the code below, edit all the red text with correct data.

<?php
$db_host = 'HOST';
$db_user = 'USER';
$db_pwd = 'PASS';

$database = 'DB';
$table = 'TABLE';

if (!mysql_connect($db_host, $db_user, $db_pwd))
    die("Can't connect to database");

if (!mysql_select_db($database))
    die("Can't select database");

// sending query
$result = mysql_query("SELECT 
  `TABLE`.FIELDNAME(DAY),`TABLE`.FIELDNAME(MONTH),`TABLE`.`FIELDNAME(YEAR)`
FROM
  `TABLE`
LIMIT 0 , 30");
if (!$result) {
    die("Query to show fields from table failed");
}

$fields_num = mysql_num_fields($result);

echo "<table border='0'><tr>";
// printing table headers
for($i=0; $i<$fields_num; $i++)
{
    $field = mysql_fetch_field($result);
    echo "<td>{$field->name}</td>";
}
echo "</tr>\n";
// printing table rows
while($row = mysql_fetch_row($result))
{
    echo "<tr>";

    // $row is array... foreach( .. ) puts every element
    // of $row to $cell variable
    foreach($row as $cell)
        echo "<td>$cell</td>";

    echo "</tr>\n";
}
mysql_free_result($result);
?>

Save as PHP, if html phasing isn't enabled. Data should appear, In the correct format you wish.

If this information was helpful. Please add to my rep. Thanks

can you change you AS DATE i think DATE() is a reserved function in MYSQL you use DATE as an ALIAS.

I just wanted to say, I was looking for an answer to this same question, and this post helped me a great deal.

Thanks!

$table=date,field name=date1,date2 , datatype=datetime

$sql="select date1 from date;
$result=mysql_query($sql) or die(mysql_error());
if($row=mysql_fetch_array($result))
   {
      $cr_date=date_create($row['date1']);
      $for_date=date_format($cr_date,'d-m-Y H:i:s');
   }
print $for_date;
