Show If adexpires is less than or = to todays date

I want to display an Ad Expired Warning on my clients ad management page. It works when I type in todays date, I also tried NOW() and CURDATE() and cannot get them to work. I simply replaced2014-06-10 with NOW()..... I must be missing something.
<?php
if ($row_WADAtbl_posts["adexpires"] <= "2014-06-10") {
?>

Thank You!

a dete in this format:
2014-06-10

is not a number, it is a string. you cant do mathematical operations on a string like that. convert the date to a time stamp (a time stamp is the number of seconds since 1/1/1970). use strtotime to convert the date in the recordset to a time stamp and time() to return the current time stamp.:

<?php
if (strtotime($row_WADAtbl_posts["adexpires"]) <= time()) {
?>

Thank you - it appears to be working without changing the recordset. Is this alarming?

the code:
strtotime($row_WADAtbl_posts["adexpires"])

is changing the recordset to a time stamp.

int he pdf you attached, that is the code you are using:
<?php
if (strtotime($row_WADAtbl_posts["adexpires"]) <= time()) {
?>
