What is in your variable $_POST? What is your expected in $_POST[DATETIME: Auto NOW()', NOW()]?

Ah, $_POST is an associative array retrieved from POST body. You are addressing an element in $_POST, DATETIME: Auto NOW()', NOW(). I am wondered what is in $_POST. Can you print_r($_POST)?

A key of an associative array must be "string".
