What am I doing wrong?

When doing the second part of this challenge, I seem to be getting an error but everything i do looks right.

The error im seeing is "Bummer! It looks like there is no Exception class"


//Place your code below this comment

try {
  $db = new PDO('sqlite::memory');
} catch ( Exception $e ) {
  echo $e->getMessage();

Heres the challenge Wrap our $db object in a try catch block. Then set up the catch statement to look for any Exception class and pass it to an object named $e"

Hi Mike,

The challenge is just being picky and doesn't want any code within the catch code block. Deleting the echo and die statements will pass.

What a pain that was! Feel like an idiot, the solution was so simple. Thanks Robert!
