I realize this question has been asked ALOT, but I am unable to find an answer on the first two pages of Google. (First time its failed).
Anyways, the first value is stored in a database in the format d/m/Y.
Second value is todays date: date("Y-m-d")
I explode the database value and change it to the same Y-m-d format.
Iv tried numerous different methods, but still nothing.
