echo "Current Date: ".$currentDate."<br>";

//Add one Date
$date = strtotime(date("Y-m-d", strtotime($currentDate)) " +1 day");
echo "Date After adding one day: ".date('l dS \o\f F Y', $date)."<br>";

$date = strtotime(date("Y-m-d", strtotime($currentDate)) " +1 week");
echo "Date After adding one week: ".date('l dS \o\f F Y', $date)."<br>";

$date = strtotime(date("Y-m-d", strtotime($currentDate)) " +2 week");
echo "Date After adding 2 weeks : ".date('l dS \o\f F Y', $date)."<br>";

$date = strtotime(date("Y-m-d", strtotime($currentDate)) " +1 month");
echo "Date After adding one month: ".date('l dS \o\f F Y', $date)."<br>";

$date = strtotime(date("Y-m-d", strtotime($currentDate)) " +30 days");

echo "Date After adding 30 days: ".date('l dS \o\f F Y', $date)."<br>";
