To get the date for yesterday in PHP, you can use the strtotime function and pass in the string "-1 day".


Here is an example of how you can use this to get the date for yesterday in the Y-m-d format:

1
$yesterday = date('Y-m-d', strtotime('-1 day'));


This will set the variable $yesterday to a string containing the date for yesterday in the Y-m-d format. For example, if today is January 3, 2023, $yesterday will be set to "2022-12-02".


You can also use other formats for the date by using a different format string in the date function. For example, you can use "m/d/Y" to get the date in the m/d/Y format (e.g., "12/02/2022").


I hope this helps! Let me know if you have any other questions.

You can get the yesterday's date in PHP using the strtotime() function and date() function. Here's an example:

1
2
$yesterday = date("Y-m-d", strtotime("-1 day"));
echo $yesterday;


This code will output the yesterday's date in the format "YYYY-MM-DD".
