Trying to get all id's whose DateTime records are 15 minutes from now

Hi,
I'm setting up a cron function running every 15 minutes that checks a column called 'scheduled' for datetimes that are 15 minutes from now and retrieves each campaign_id so I can send out a reminder email about that upcoming campaign.

Records can be saved in 15 minute values only, for example:
2013-06-13 11:00:00 or 2013-06-13 11:15:00 or 2013-06-13 11:30:00 or 2013-06-13 11:45:00

Any idea what a query may look like?

mysql_query("SELECT campaign_id FROM messaging WHERE scheduled = ???...");

Any help would be much appreciated.

$future = date('c', strtotime('NOW + 15 MINUTES'));
$query = "SELECT campaign_id FROM messaging WHERE scheduled = '$future' ";

If you're actually using the MySQL extension, you may want to make a change.  PHP is removing support for MySQL.  This article explains why and what you must do to keep your scripts running.
