Getting data posted in between two dates

To get data posted between two dates in PHP, you can use a SQL query with a WHERE clause and the BETWEEN operator.

Here is an example of how you can retrieve data from a MySQL database table between two dates:


$start_date = '2022-01-01';
$end_date = '2022-01-31';

$query = "SELECT * FROM table_name WHERE date_column BETWEEN '$start_date' AND '$end_date'";

$result = mysqli_query($connection, $query);

while ($row = mysqli_fetch_array($result)) {
  // process the data

In this example, the $start_date and $end_date variables hold the start and end dates for the date range. The SELECT query retrieves all rows from the table_name table where the date_column is between the start and end dates.

You can then use a while loop to iterate over the rows of the result set and process the data as needed.

It's important to note that you should use prepared statements and parameterized queries to protect against SQL injection attacks when using user-provided data in your queries.
