On this challenge, you are just supposed echo the words Hello world between the body tag. So you do not need to add a paragraph tag, just the php code. Should look like this:

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

you didnt close the 'p' tag !

OK thanks I didn't use <!DOCTYPE html> and didn't close </p> It works now.
