PHP PHP Basics Daily Exercise Program String Manipulation

My code works in the workspace console but not in the test console.

<?php $firstName = "Rasmus"; $lastName = "Lerdorf"; $fullName = "$firstName" . " $lastName"; $fullName .= " was the original creator of PHP." . " \n "; echo $fullName; ?>

I am not sure where I am going wrong.


//Place your code below this comment
$firstName = "Rasmus";
$lastName = "Lerdorf";
$fullName = "$firstName" . " $lastName";
$fullName .= " was the original creator of PHP." . " \n ";

The instructions for task 3 say to display the message string to the screen, but this code modifies $fullName instead.

The instructions also say to make use of $fullName, but don't ask for it to be modified.

Thank you. I am still confused. Sorry. I will go back to the video.
