    if you have the dates, convert them to unix timestamp, subtract the earliest date from the latest and then convert it back to number of days.


    $early = mktime(hour,minute,second,month,day,year,daylight savings?); //all of these are optional but should be set to 0 if not used.
    $late = mktime(hour,minute,second,month,day,year,daylight savings?);

    $days = ($late-$early)/86400; //number of seconds in a day
