Adding days to a date and comparing dates within argument

Ryan Bayne

I need to check the datetime I have in my DB (MSSQL) against the current datetime. If the current datetime is 7 days after the DB stored datetime then true.

            if($now >= $wcpastdate){
else { current datetime is not 7 days after the DB datetime so do something different here }

So I was thinking I would have to increase the stored date by 7 and if its still more than the current date I dont have to do anything otherwise I need to reset the datetime in database.

Thanks for any solutions
