Keep your mktime() as it is, that's correct. Then use something like this to calculate the age: $age = date('Y',$now) - date('Y',$dob) - ((date('z',$now)>=date('z',$dob)) ? 0 : 1); where $dob and $now are the appropriate unix timestamps that you've already got calculated with mktime() and time(). ---John W.
