I am playing around with Mysql and php and I am not sure about when it
is best do something in mysql or php when BOTH can perform the

Example, date formating can be performed by Mysql during the query
DATE_FORMAT(blah, blah...) or by php with date(blah, blah..).  What are
the upsides/downsides of doing something like this in Mysql/php.

My current (though limited) thinking is not much improvement in either
approach over the other in both operations are performed by the same
server.  I can only see a difference when using huge databases and the
database is on a different machine.  

What is considered to be "Best practise" when Mysql and php can perform
the same operation?
