    Using PHP to get dayname() in MySQL?

    I use the following code to try and return the name of the day for a given date by a MySQL query...and it don't work.

    It works when I do the MySQL query directly but not with PHP. Please consider:

    (I replaced the MySQL host, username, database and pass here-- but I KNOW they are correct in my code)

    Code:
    <html>
    <head>
    <title>Test the date</title>
    </head>
    
    <body>
    
    <form action="<?php $_SERVER[PHP_SELF] ?>" method="POST">
    Type the date in YYYY-MM-DD format:
    <input type="text" name="date">
    <input type="submit" value="get info">
    </form>
    
    <?php
    
    $mysqlconn = mysql_connect("myhost", "myusername", "mypass");
    mysql_select_db("mydatabase", $mysqlconn);
    
    
    if (!isset($_POST[date])) {
      print "Enter a date...";
    } else {
      $date = $_POST[date];
      print "Info for $date:";
      print "<br />";
      
      $dayname = "SELECT dayname('$date')";
      print "The day of week of this date is: ";
    
      $daynamequery = mysql_query($dayname, $mysqlconn);
     
    }
    
    ?>
    
    </body>
    </html>
    ...Do I need to specify a database in my query, e.g.

    $dayname = "SELECT dayname('$date') FROM 'database'"; ???

    Please note I also know that $date is in the correct format for the mysql query YYYY-MM-DD.

    Edit: here is the link where the script is run: http://captainscall.site11.com/page_...estthedate.php

    Thanks,
    Doug
