echoing doesn't output to console. It outputs to the browser window. If you wrote a short HTML program with PHP in it...

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
    <head>
        <meta charset="utf-8">
        <title>My Webpage</title>
    </head>
    <body>
        <h1>My Webpage!</h1>
        <?php
            echo "Hello world!";
        ?>
    </body>
</html>

...and you ran the HTML in a browser, it should say something like "My Webpage!" and then "Hello world!"

Thank you! It does work this way, was just wondering why it wasn't working in the workspace Treehouse provides, as I was following along with the video
