You should use a DATE column, maybe?? Or a timestamp, depending on what
you want to do.

The query you'd use is:

INSERT INTO tblDate (fldDate) VALUES (NOW())

where NOW() is a MySQL function, not a PHP one. MySQL date formats are
YYYYMMDD (as an integer) or YYYY-MM-DD (as a string). 

Adapt to your needs.
