You have to enable php error reporting. An easy debug solution is to use view->show console

Then you can run your file and it will output any errors it runs into. e.g, :

treehouse:~/workspace$ php index.php

Edit: To add to my existing comment to help others in the future(got confused, had to start this series over.. no shame!), you can also display errors in the browser with the following snippet:

ini_set('display_errors', 1);

I put it in my config.php, but it can be set on a per-page basis.

Hello Darrell and Brandyn

Darrell, I hope Brandyn helped you find the error you were experiencing. Brandyn, thank you helping assist Darrel and other students.

It would be useful to the community if Darrel does not need any more assistance on this issue, to have an answer selected as best answer so this question is not still listed as unresolved.
