- problems with my first test code

The time is
<?php echo date(H:i:s');?>
and the date is
<?php echo date(j F Y');?>
I typed it in an editor called Notepad++, FTP'd it using ASCII onto an
ISP that I know has Apache/MySQL/PHP installed and working. But when I
go to the URL http://www.fearofdolls.com/time.php I get the error Parse
error: parse error, unexpected ':' in
/home/fearofdo/public_html/time.php on line 2.
What am I doing wrong?
This is the second time this happened to me- my first test code had a
similar problem, and that's when I switched to a non-MS notepad editor
so it would save it correctly, but this time I can't figure out what's
going wrong. It seems that php is very difficult to get to work.
Re: problems with my first test code
You don't quote correctly. Either your not that great in retyping them, or
you should ask for your money back.
If you use Notepad++, I assume you have syntax highlighting, which might
have told you that fact. Normally, a good editor will give a string a
different color (and functions, and variable names....), usually some
echo date('j F Y');
Remember, it's not like HTML, every quote counts, and omitting it will not
be forgiven :-).
