Ever wonder how many days there are in a specific month ?
Your quest is over, I have what you need : the cal_days_in_month() function from the Calendar PHP extension. This function can work with different calendars : gregorian, julian, jewish… Then just specified a month of a particular year and it will return the number of days :
$days = cal_days_in_month(CAL_GREGORIAN, 2, 2024); echo $days; // output : 29 $days = cal_days_in_month(CAL_GREGORIAN, date('n'), date('Y')); echo $days; // output : 30
To list the available calendars, you may use cal_info() :
