How to use PHP to get the current year?

I want to put a copyright notice in the footer of a web site, but I think it's incredibly tacky for the year to be out-of-date. How would I make the year update automatically with PHP 4 and PHP 5?

Get full Year used:

    echo $curr_year = date('Y'); // it will display full year ex. 2017

Or get only two digit of year used like this:

    echo $curr_year = date('y'); // it will display short 2 digit year ex. 17

My way to show the copyright, That keeps on updating automatically

Copyright © <?php $copyYear = 2017; // Set your website start date $curYear = date('Y'); // Keeps the second year updated echo $copyYear . (($copyYear != $curYear) ? '-' . $curYear : ''); ?>

It will output the results as

copyright @ 2017   //if $copyYear is 2017 
copyright @ 2017-201x    //if $copyYear is not equal to Current Year.
