I am using the below code to get next month

$nextmonth = date("m")+1;

echo $nextmonth;

So currently prints "3"

How can I make it print as 03 instead of 3 only if the result is a single number i.e. 0 to 9 not 10 to 12?

If you want keep $nextmonth to be a decimal number but just print out '03' you can simply use

printf( "%02d", $nextmonth );
