PHP PHP Basics PHP on the Web Date Function

what is the built-date function?

so I thought it was echo date ("F d, Y); and when I preview it it looks correct but it says I have to use the built-date function, if that's not it then what is it?

index.php
<?php
echo "Today is ";
//Place your code below this comment
//echo "Today is " . date ("F d ,Y", getlastmod());
//$today = date ("F d, Y");
echo date ("F d, Y");
?>

The built-in date function is described in the link provided in the challenge. You are using this function in your code but it is failing due to the space between date and the opening parenthesis. Remove that space and you will pass.

ah thank you
