  OK I came up with a better method that works and would account for leap years:


$age 0;
$months 0;
while (
time() > $birthDate) {
$birthDate strtotime("+1 year",$birthDate);
$birthDate strtotime("-1 year",$birthDate);
while (
time() > $birthDate) {
$birthDate strtotime("+1 month",$birthDate);
strval($age) . " years " $months " months");

Eh? This is out by one year and one month?
DOB in database, for the above, is 29/06/2006 yet it's displayed as 11 years 1 month.

Hope you can help. Thank you.
