It looks like you might be getting tripped up with the string concatenation syntax. When you're using variables, you don't enclose them in quotes. Your values are already strings, so you don't have to wrap them. Other than that you've got the right idea!

<?php
$firstName="Rasmus";
$lastName="Lerdorf";  
$fullName=$firstName.$lastName; // No quote marks needed.
?>

This will get you to a more helpful error message. But if you get stuck, let me know and we can walk through a solution to this step. Happy coding!
