In this tutorial, we are going to learn about how to get the current year in PHP.
To get the current year in PHP, we can use the built-in
date() function by passing the
"Y" format character as an argument to it.
date("Y") function returns the current year in four-digit(2021) string format according to the user’s local time.
Here is an example:
$year = date("Y"); echo $year;
We can also get the current year in a two-digit format by passing the small
"y" as an argument to the
$year = date("y"); echo $year;
