PHP PHP Basics (Retired) PHP Conditionals & Loops Conditionals Challenge

Why is this procedure wrong?

It keeps stating to use the statement from above which is 'Hi, I am Mike!'. Yet, it keeps saying I am wrong. Help please.

index.php
<?php

$name = 'Mike';

if($name){
 $name == 'Hi, I am Mike!';
}
echo $name;
?>

Jason gave a solution but to clarify a bit: You're comparing "Mike" to "Hi, I am Mike!" then echoing the variable, in this case "Mike".
