Hi Samsor, you have the strtolower() function part correct, but you need to provide it with the entire contents of the file, not the name of the file.

$contents = file_get_contents('example' . '/' . $file);
echo strtolower($contents);

That worked - the question was just worded very confusingly and didn't make it clear what they wanted. Thank you!
