PHP PHP Basics PHP on the Web Date Function

Could someone help me out with this problem?

The problem is as follows: As a developer, you'll spend a lot of time in the documentation. For this code challenge, you'll need to check out the documentation for the date function to see details about formatting.

Use a SINGLE date function to display today's date in the message. Use the following format: full month, day of the month with leading 0, comma and 4 digit year.

Example: Today is July 04, 2016.

As far as I can tell, my code output is correct, but it isn't accepting it, so I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong.

Can somebody point me in the right direction?

index.php
<?php
echo 'Today is ';
//Place your code below this comment
echo date('F' . ' ' . 'd' . ',' . ' ' . 'Y');
?>

with the date function, there is no need to perform concatenation: it accepts a string which it will pick up the letters accordingly

<?php
echo 'Today is ';
//Place your code below this comment
echo date("F d, Y");
?>
