Date Function

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

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

?>

You're very close. To output the date in the proper format that they're asking, you just need to echo (or print) the date() with the letters you provided.

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