Debugging month-dependent PHP scripts

A bit new to php, yet I have a PHP script that basically checks what month are we in, and according to that it perofrms a certain action.

Now, is there a way to make the php environment "think" that we are in a different month, so I could test out the reaction over the 12 month without actually waiting for a year to pass, lol.


function getMonth(){
return 3;

function getMonth(){
return date('n');


Use a function, use the 2nd one in your real code, and the first one when you are testing.

You could get jiggy with it and include it in a file, just comment out one or the other as needed.
