PHP

Task 2 of 2 in PHP basics

Have no idea why this is not working

<?php 
  $name = "Mike" ;
  echo $name ;
?>

I have tried spaces between semicolons, writing it on line one, different php blocks and I am still getting the bummer error..

What the hell am I missing?

Try it without the spaces

Ok this is really strange, I removed the spaces it didn't work. But then I copy pasted your code (even though it was exactly the same) and It worked.

Definitely some bug issues here. Thanks though
