Be warned - That's an old article that doesn't cover the wonders of strtotime, instead writing reams of code that does less.

Here is what i do

This works with the current date

$date1 = mktime (0,0,0,date("m") ,date("d")-5,date("Y"));
$date = date("m/d/y", $date1);

echo "$date";

if you wanted it for a certain date you could do this

<?php

$date1 = mktime (0,0,0,date("8") ,date("4")-5,date("2004"));
$date = date("Y-d-m", $date1);

echo "$date";

?>
