I used phpMyAdmin to set the data type of a column as date. You'll be advantaged when handling the data in your script as it follows a standard with many premade functions to do calculations and formatting. Remember that the format of the date to be stored in the db must be yyyy-mm-dd like 2017-12-13. In phpMyAdmin go on the table structure page, select the column you want to hold dates and click on change. from the dropdown menu (after the column Name input field) chose date. click ok and you are done. Make sure the data in the column follows the a.m. date format.


Use a column to store date and then select from tableName where dateColumn = (yyyy-mm-dd)
