PHP PHP Basics PHP on the Web Date Function

Why does this code not pass the exercise to output current date ```php echo date(F ." ". d .", ". Y); ```

I get the proper output in my dev environment but the exercise says I am incorrect. Can anyone explain why?

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

Hi Russell,

with the date function you don't need the extra quote marks to represent a space.

you can do it as:

<?php
echo 'Today is ';
//Place your code below this comment
echo date("F d, Y"); 
?>

for extra information I would suggest checking out the php.net manual on: http://php.net/manual/en/function.date.php

Thank you.
