# RE: [PHP] Problem with date

```strtotime would be a neater way of solving the problem...

ie (untested):```
```
\$n = 0;
while (\$n <= 9)
{
\$date = "d".\$n;
\$\$date = date("Y-m-d", strtotime("+ \$n days")
\$n++;
}

If you are just enquiring about the maths though, I'm not sure!

Subject: [PHP] Problem with date

Hi,

I have a problem with date function.

\$gen_pos = mktime(0,0,1,10,25,2009);
\$d1 = date("Y-m-d", \$gen_pos);                // 2009-10-25
\$d2 = date("Y-m-d", \$gen_pos + (1*24*60*60)); // 2009-10-25
\$d3 = date("Y-m-d", \$gen_pos + (2*24*60*60)); // 2009-10-26
\$d4 = date("Y-m-d", \$gen_pos + (3*24*60*60)); // 2009-10-27
\$d5 = date("Y-m-d", \$gen_pos + (4*24*60*60));
\$d6 = date("Y-m-d", \$gen_pos + (5*24*60*60));
\$d7 = date("Y-m-d", \$gen_pos + (6*24*60*60));
\$d8 = date("Y-m-d", \$gen_pos + (7*24*60*60));

line 2 and line 3 return same date,its wrong ... it should be 2009-10-25

, 2009-10-26 ? :)
