How to get the first day of the current year?
In PHP, you can use the
mktime function to get the Unix timestamp of the first day of the current year, then use the
date function to format it as a date string.
Here's an example:
$firstDayOfYear = mktime(0, 0, 0, 1, 1, date("Y")); $firstDayOfYear = date("Y-m-d", $firstDayOfYear); echo $firstDayOfYear;
mktime function creates a timestamp based on the parameters provided: hour (0), minute (0), second (0), month (1, January), day (1), and year (the current year, obtained using the
date function with the format "Y").
date function then formats the timestamp as a date string in the format "Y-m-d".
