To calculate a person's age from their birthdate in PHP, you simply need to get the difference in years between the birthdate and the date today. This can be done in the following way:
$birthdate = new DateTime('1999-05-01'); $today = new DateTime(); $diff = $today->diff($birthdate); $age = (int) $diff->format('%y'); echo $age; // 22
Please note that the return value of the
DateTimeInterface::diff() method is an instance of
DateInterval class. When you use the
DateInterval::format() method, it returns a string. Therefore, casting the formatted output to an integer is important in this case to ensure the correct type.
