// I have problem. it does not take tha date and assign it to the  $date_comingfrom_database
what should I do?

$query = "SELECT Email,Date FROM Mytable where Email='$visitoremail'";
$sql=mysql_query($query);
$result = mysql_fetch_array($query); // I have error message Warning: mysql_fetch_array(): supplied argument is not a valid MySQL result resource in /
// I have problem here it does not take tha date and assign it to the  $date_comingfrom_database

$date_comingfrom_database = $result['Date'];
$databaseemail =$result['Email'];

$todaysdate = date('Y-m-d H:i:s');

if ( ( strtotime('Y-m-d H:i:s') - strtotime($date_comingfrom_database) >= 50 ) && ($databaseemail = $visitormail))
{
echo "record exist."  . $date_comingfrom_database . " ".$databaseemail. " ".$visitormail    ;
}
else
{
echo "record not exist." . $date_comingfrom_database . " ".$databaseemail. " ".$visitormail    ; // it only writes record not exist. and $visitormail here
}
