Hi guys

I have variable $date which equals unix time format (for exaple 1298835792). What is the easyest way to add + 2 days to my unix date and then return new date in format: date ("Y-m-d")?

Another key point is to display $date2 in correct time format for example if in this month only 28 days, + 2days shoud be != 30

<?php 
$timestamp=time(); //current timestamp
echo "Current Time: $timestamp<br>";
$tm=$timestamp+172800; // Will add 2 days to the $timestamp
$da=date("F j, Y, g:i a", $timestamp);
echo "Current time string: $da <br>";
$da1=date("F j, Y, g:i a", $tm);
echo "Modified time: $da1 <br>";
?>
