Not sure why you need the 5 days in advance bit, but this might give you the
tools to work it all out.

I prefer to work with dates in unix timestamp format (seconds).

To get "now", use time()

To get "next month", there's a kewl function called strtotime(), which
converts english phrases into timestamps... eg strtotime("+1 month") might
do the job, or "next month"... experiment, use the manual, etc etc

To get "now - 5 days" either use strtotime("-5 days") or

$nowMinus5days = time() - 432000; // 432000 = 5x24x60x60
$nowMinus5days = date('d/m/y', $nowMinus5days);

Hope this helps,
