There is nothing wrong with your code, only what is wrong with your answer to the challenge. Remember that the answers are looking at text strings to see if they match. In this case, they are not expecting the paragraph tags. This code passed for me:

<html>
<head>
<title>PHP Basic Usage Challenge</title>
</head>
<body>
  <?php echo "Hello World" ?>
</body>
</html>
