Please help a noob here
So I got a fairly basic understanding of SQL. I have an Afrihost hosting packing with SQL 5.1. In PhpMyAdmin I run a simple query SELECT NOW() and it returns a result. However when I run SELECT GETDATE() I get the following error: #1305 - FUNCTION dbname_db.GETDATE does not exist
Should the results be the same?
I'm suspecting that this database doesn't have a lot of functions?
