php: creating the menu and footer-starting the project

Hi there! So I need some help with this. I have been following along with the video.

I followed the previous videos where it showed how to install mamp. I have that installed correctly however when I tried to change the ports to:

Apache: 80 (as suggested in the video) MSQL: 8889

it did not work. However when I swtiched back to the default (apache 8888) everything worked fine.

Now that I am working on the video creating the menu and footer-starting the project I am getting some problems when I change the file to index.php. My web browser is showing a server error.

I am pretty sure my syntax is correct. Here are the lines that were edited on my text editor: <title><?php echo "Shirts 4 Mike";?></title>

and then at the bottom:

<p>Ā©<? php echo date ('Y'); ?> Shirts 4 Mike</p>

any help?
