PHP PHP Basics PHP on the Web Date Function

Date function won’t accept answer even though I am sure it’s right.

It says that the date should return June 25, 2019.

The return of my code literally displays “Today is June 25, 2019”, exactly like it says up there. And I used the version with trailing zero, before you ask.

Yet it still tells me I am wrong. What is going on?

For reference, here is my code:


echo 'Today is ';

//Place your code below this comment

echo date('F' . " " . 'd' . ", " . 'Y')


Can you post your code?

Although there are a few answers that provide the specified date, and you have the right format characters, the challenge accepts a format of a single string without concatenation. Example #4 in the linked documentation shows some sample formats.
