Lose the comma, exclamation mark, p tags and add a semi colon at the end of your statement.

<?php echo "Hello World"; ?>

  1. Refresh your browser

  2. Copy and paste the following between the body tags, NOTHING ELSE ( no p tags )

<?php echo "Hello World"; ?>

It for sure works. Your just doing something wrong.
