Hello, I am trying to disable a select element if my checkbox has been checked. Just by code using javascript and all, it was successful but it got tricky when I involved some php.

this is my html:
<select id="month">
   <option></option> //data fetch from db
<input type="checkbox" id="curr" name="pre" onclick="preCheck()" 
value="present" <?php if($row['exit'] == "present"){ echo "checked"; }else{ echo "unchecked"; } ?> >

this is my js:
function preCheck(){
    var curr= document.getElementById('curr');
    if (curr.checked){
        document.getElementById("month").setAttribute("disabled", "disabled");

What I have tried:

I had looked up the problem and have noticed that onclick will not work with php but i was wondering if there was a way around it as I am not that skilled in programming

Php, is server sided, all Php instructions are processed on it.
But to interact with Javascript on the Client web page, you can fire Javascript functions,

using a call to your function, with 'echo' and ' ....

echo "<script> preCheck(); </script>" ;

// that will add this line of JS code to the page to be send,
// and at page load at client side, the function involved will fire.
